Antique Salt Glazed STONEWARE CROCK W/ COBALT FLOWERS
Note: Insurance is required for this item and will be determined at auction's end according to final bid amount.
Extremely rare circa 1850's brush-decorated, salt-glazed stoneware crock/jar with lug handles and a deep blue cobalt floral spray design. By William Moyer's Stoneware Manufactory, Filbert Street between North and State Streets, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Moyer was only in business for 2 years (1858-1860), thus any piece by this master potter is quite a find for the serious stoneware collector. Imprinted "Moyer,Harrisburg" in a cobalt-brushed arc above the front design. We could detect NO CRACKS in this lovely antique piece.
10 3/4" height. 7" base diameter. 7 1/2" total width, including lug handles.
Several minor nicks and chips on the top and inset rims. Many spots of flaking and a few shallow chips/nicks (see photos). Tan paint? streak to the right of front design. Some chalky white residue and t Inside has some paint spots. Some minor clay-type stains. Small drainage hole in back near base (see photo) that appears to be original to the piece but may have been created at a later time.
