Stoneware Cake Crock with Cobalt Floral Decoration, 1-Gallon capacity, New England origin, ca. Wheel-thrown, squat cylindrical form with tooled rounded rim and applied lug handles. Salt-Glazed exterior; Albany Slip interior. Impressed below the rim with a cobalt-washed stamp reading: NICHOLS & BOYNTON / BURLINGTON, VT. This was a short-lived partnership, and the mark is considered rare.

I doubt very many Cake Crocks were produced by this firm. See Bill Ketchums American Stoneware, p. 45 for further information and authors classification. Front features a primitive, fern-like Floral decoration in bold Slip-Trailed Cobalt. Condition : Very Good overall with strong color, uncommon form and desirable Burlington mark.

Minor mperfections are noted below. Moderate wear along the upper rim, where a lid would rest. Small chips on handles and base, as shown. Discoloration and a contact mark on right side & reverse, in-the-making.

No cracks or repaired damage. See photos for complete details and please consider them as part of the description. Measures 5"H x 11"W overall, including the handles.

The inner and outer rim diameters are 8-3/4 and 10-1/4, respectively. Good Luck, thanks for looking, and be sure to bookmark my Auctions, listed and ending daily.
