Antique Salt Glazed Stoneware Jug incised with WM. E WARNER WEST TROY incised above the beautiful deep indigo cobalt blue hand applied floral design for which William Warner was well known. There is a cobalt wash over the lettering.

The jug is 9 1/2 inches high and 7 inches across the base. I think it is the right size to be a one gallon jug but is not marked with the size. The jug was made with a hand applied handle which unfortunately is mostly broke off. A good potter could repair this as the ends where they attach are still there.

It still displays well as is with other stoneware as the handle is in the back. The salt glaze finish on the crock has a nice orange peel look and feel. The bottom has a light glaze over it for protection that of course has wore off around the edge of the bottom from age and use. Aside from the broken handle, there are only 2 very small chips, no cracks. One chip is on the outside lip edge that is about 1/4 inch wide by 3/8 inch long. The second chip which is closer to a flake and barely 1/8 inch long is on the top of the lip. If you feel around the bottom edge you can feel four flakes, no real big chips. All antique stoneware shows some evidence of wear and flaws in its manufacture of which these base flakes could be. There is a stain at the bottom of the front you can see in my photos which undoubtedly has seeped up from where the glaze has wore off around the outside bottom edge. Warner had a pottery business in New Jersey in the 1830s first and then moved to West Troy, New York where he had a pottery in the 1840's and 1850s. It is from a smoke free home. I will be sure to describe my items the best I can and note any flaws.
