I have had this in my possession for over 25 years. Please view the photos; they are part of the description. Antique - Vintage Union 2 Gallon Stoneware Pottery Crock Blue Cobalt Birch Leaf. The Start of the Stamped Design.
Around 1896, salt glaze was replaced by a creamy colored zinc glaze and the hand drawn cobalt designs gave way to stamped designs. The first two stamps to be used where the Elephant Ear and the Birch Leaf pictured below. They were stamped as single pairs or double pairs. With the use of stamps, it became much easier to identify a crock as Red Wing.
Glaze smooth to touch nearly everywhere. Repaired crack to the left of leaves.
