This is a great, vintage, earth-toned handled crock. It reminds me of a bean pot. It has been glazed in a dark, coffee brown, a neutral beige color, and there's a stripe of an in between color where the dark brown glaze has overlapped the beige color. The crock is marked "1 Qt" on the front in cobalt blue. Also, it has been stamped on the bottom "1 Qt". Other than those two marks, there are no other marks on the piece. The handle is secure. There are 3 spots on the rim of the crock where the dark brown glaze didn't stick and 1 small chip. It's a solid, heavy piece of stoneware. It measures approximately 5.5" tall and the opening in the top is approximately 3" in diameter. This would look great in your kitchen!
