It is stenciled with I. HEWITT JR RICES LANDING, PA.It has some other cobalt blue decoration above and below the stencil. I believe it was made in the 1870s. It is in excellent antique condition overall with no cracks, hairlines, or repairs.
Just a small nick on decorative ridge near top (photo 12). Usual discolored areas on sides. No other chips or damage that I can find. Top rim and base edge are perfect!
It looks very clean and shiny! Please view the photos carefully as they are my main description.
