Our donor gave this marvelous antique crock a big hug. When she brought it to us. With its hand drawn cobalt blue artistry, very cute'Ear' lug handles, rolled over lip top rim, ochre color.
Primitive crock is a rich part of mid-1800s American history. The two gallon capacity crock is 9-1/4 inches tall with a 10 inch diameter. The crock is in Good. Antique condition with no significant chips or cracks but it does have some ancient wear, including two chips in the rim and one on a handle, and some splotchy discoloration. The pair of surface cracks shown in the next to last photo appear to be full of glaze; The civil engineer in my life says they probably date from when the crock was originally made.
