Antique Cobalt Blue Slip Trailed Decorated Stoneware Nearly Perfect. This is a large crock marked 5 with whimsical and enchanting and large flower decoration.
It is incised with an accent line just above the attached handles. New York late 1800's. Ever so slightly flared, the crock is a bit more than 12 1/2" tall x 11 wide at the bottom and 11 1/2" including the wider lip. This early piece would make a great addition to any stoneware or crock collection and is being offered without reserve. Heavy piece weights about 20 pounds.
No significant cracks, No Repairs, No Modifications, No Post Production Chips that we can see! One small and stable surface hairline about 1 1/4 on the rim which does not appear to go through the crock. As typical in old pottery, made by hand you will see some "imperfections" that are part of the charm of old stoneware and inherent to the process. There is a section where the potter's finger came across the still uncured clay. There is a single kiln blemish which was no uncommon as many times other items exploded in the kiln.This single kiln ding is on the rear of the crock and it measures about 3/4' x 1/2. Lastly, there is a small imperfection on one handle that appears to have occurred during production.
