Description : A rare, large-size #6 Blue & Gray Stoneware Storage Canister or Crock with original Lid, attributed to Whites of Utica, NY, ca. Molded cylindrical form with (6) embossed and cobalt-highlighted Leaves; probably Wild (Summer) Grape, Birch or similar over an overall stippled ground. Impressed 6 above the decoration. Matching lid with stippled detail and circular (4) florets at each quadrant.
I believe this was the largest size in the Whites canister series and would consider very scarce in any condition. Note : Lacking the original wire bail handle with turned wooden handle (usually painted black). I can send photos of a smaller-size Utica canister with an original handle, if you are interested in replicating on this one. Condition : Very Good overall with crisp embossing and very strong color.
Minor Imperfections are noted below. Canister rim with several chips from use, as shown. Button handle on lid with in-the-making clay separation around the base. Minor clay separations at the bail handle terminals. Mold imperfection on the body, rear side.
White paint residue on base. Inherent glaze, surface and firing imperfections noted for complete descriptive accuracy.
No cracks, repaired damage or restoration work. See photos for complete details and please consider them as part of the description. Approximate 1-Gallon capacity (16 Cups), filled to 1 below the rim line. Measures approximately 8W x 7-1/2H overall, including the cover.Good Luck, thanks for looking, and be sure to bookmark my Auctions, listed and ending daily.
