This stoneware was made in New Brunswick, NJ. The crock dates to the 1880s to 1890s period. We see no cracks or hairlines to the crock. We see a couple of minor chips that are on the bottom.
The handles are securely attached to the crock. A small chip in one spot on the side, see pic. Nice impression of the pottery's name on the side of the crock with a two gallon marking.
There is a Cobalt Blue design below the name of the pottery. Also, nice cobalt bluing at the bottom of both handles.
Not sure if the maker of the crock was from Somerset, Pennsylvania or Massachusetts. I see pottery firms in both states in Somerset, but appears PA is the correct state. The Connolly & Palmer Stoneware Crock is 8.75" tall, by 10.5" across by the handles, by 9-7/8 wide.
