This is a very large, very heavy, beautifully aged antique crock.

Originally this crock may have been a receptacle for butter, for lard, or for storing eggs in water glass (the country method for preserving them against winter scarcity). Present-day uses may range anywhere from a jardiniere to a wastepaper basket. I love it as a planter :)

Stoneware as the name implies, is very hard. It is made from a fine, dense clay and being fired at a high temperature attains a consistency akin to hard-paste porcelain. The glaze is obtained by throwing ordinary salt into a kiln full of the ware at high heat.

As there were deposits of clay in both New Jersey and New York, potters in these two colonies were the first to make household utensils in this ware. There are records of such potteries in the late 17th Century, but though hardness and durability were distinct assets, the appeal of stoneware to the general public did not begin until after the American Revolution. Potters all over the country kept on making it in various forms, along with stoneware, right down to the beginning of the 20th Century.

I am unsure of the exact age. It has 2 chips and a small crack to the left of the crown. Please see photos. I think it adds much to its character and the aged, worn look we love :) This bears no makers mark or other distinguishing marks besides the sweet crown with the two in the center.

**Shipping price reflects coast to coast and I am always happy to refund large overages. This item will be shipped with insurance and delivery confirmation.

Thanks for looking!!

Measures 9 1/2" tall, 10" wide, 30" circumference.
