Antique C. Hermann Co. Crock Yellow Ware Jar Milwaukee

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Rare, antique 1850's C. Hermann & Co. Milwaukee Crock shaped like a jar. Tan colored salt glaze on the outside with dark brown Albany slip glaze inside. Looks to be a yellow ware piece... there are some chips, please view all pictures. Whom ever glazed the piece was a tad sloppy, drips in the glaze and a mark on the side that happened during the firing process. The impressed C. Hermann & Co. logo is very nice. The wonderfully shaped jar measures about 7.75 inches tall x 5 inches across the bottom and is in Good vintage condition.

Milwaukee was a stoneware center in Wisconsin. The river's shore was once piled high with Ohio clay brought to the city to serve the kilns of Charles Herman & Co. and a few other manufacturers. The Herman firm opened in 1856 and closed in 1902. Their stamp "C. HERMANN & Co." or sometimes just the name or with "MILWAUKEE", appears on pieces.

Please ask any questions you have before purchasing, I want you to be happy with this treasure!
