Antique H J Miller & Son Antique Stoneware Crock China & Glassware Alexandria VA. Would make a great gift for a special occasion, or keep it for yourself! Nice unique coloring and details on this signed Stoneware Crock. Nice Cobalt Blue decor on the crock. The crock most likely dates to the circa 1880s period.
The jug is marked, "H H J Miller & Son, China & Glass Ware Alexandria, VA". We see no cracks or hairlines to the batter jug with the exception of spidering on the bottom that leads out from center by 4 lines. The hairlines do not carry to the inside of the crock. The jug's structural integrity sounds good when "thumped". We see a place along the lip where seems to have been sliced at one time.
Not sure if originally like that or happened later. There is a Cobalt Blue design above and below the name on the one side of the crock. There also appears to be "1 1/2" probably for the gallon size of the crock below the name and an arrow pointing at it on the right side.
The inside of the jar is done in a reddish brown finish. The Antique Stoneware Crock is 11-1/16" tall, by 7" across the top (5-3/16" inside opening at top), by 6-13/16" wide at the base. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
