[Slightly deformed, wire-cut lid is a result of the crock being thrown on a potter's wheel & since it was a utilitarian object, it was not discarded & subsequently glazed, decorated and fired in the kiln, without prejudice]. Mid-19th century Ame ri can folk art, New England primitive, antique salt-glazed, wheel-thrown & hand decorated stoneware ceramic jugs & crocks. 11 1/4" Height x 6 1/2" top Diameter x 7 Widest point. Offered is a scarce 1 1/2 gallon, mid-19th century Ame ri can folk art, New England primitive, antique, narrow, upright, salt-glazed stoneware ceramic crock, featuring a stamped maker's mark on its upper sidewall shoulder and a wispy, repeating, cobalt blue slip leafy decoration, circumnavigating the crock, under the wire cut, square profile rim. There's no noticeable, appreciable damage, less what appears to be a firing fracture on the baseplate caused in the kiln when the crock was initially realized or happening when the wheel-thrown clay pot was drying on a drying rack before firing. The damage was not subsequent to the piece's realization.
The colors are variegated and consist of putty white, burnt sienna and cobalt blue. The salt glaze is reflective and has a shiny finish.
The slightly deformed, wire-cut lid and squared upper sill, is a result of the crock being thrown on a potter's wheel and since it was a utilitarian object, it wasn't discarded but kept and subsequently glazed, decorated and fired in the kiln, without prejudice. Very Good to Excellent overall antique condition. This item is in the category "Antiques\Primitives". The seller is "modsanctuary" and is located in this country: US.
