A photo of a pottery shard with this specific blue decoration is on Page 115, Fig. This is an extremely rare, historic crock. This same pottery area made stoneware for Thomas Jefferson. This crock has only a few apologies of a missing handle, a 3/8 chip above the other handle and a teeny manufacturing hairline filled with glaze. These are difficult to see due to blending in with the gray clay, as well as the captivating blue decorations.
