This wonderful early to mid 19th century American folk art antique New England primitive salt glazed stoneware crock with its original lid, has no hairline cracks or significant, noticeable edge flea-bites and comes complete with what appears to be its original fitted ceramic lid. Found in an early homestead here in southern New Hampshire, the lid was described as always being with the stoneware crock and sat on a wood plank shelf in the back pantry of the kitchen for as long as anyone in the home remembered. It's unwashed and 100% absolutely untouched.
It has a wheel-thrown vessel body and lid. The color of the lid is slightly different than the color of the crock's body, giving the piece a nice, off-set, decorative appeal and look.Most likely realized in New England from 1840 to just after the conclusion of the US Civil War in 1870, this New England primitive vessel is particularly early and even has a terrific, variegated interior glaze, resembling the glaze of early American redware art pottery. Very Good to Excellent overall antique condition.
