Vintage Antique Western Stoneware Crock Bowl 10 1/2"This lovely old bowl was never used, and is in excellent condition. It has typical factory defects that all pottery have, like missed paint spots, burrs, and rough spots. This only ads to uniqueness of pottery. It does not have any chips or cracks in glaze, as it wasn't used and was stored in china cabinet. It is a very unusual blue color with sand colored rim. It is 10 1/2" W by 4" tall. I have been told the blue is a rare color as most items are functional, and looks were not important. It would make a great bread bowl, but value is really for collector of pottery. In 1906, 7 small potteries were merged to form the Western Stoneware Company, Weir Pottery, Monmouth Pottery, Macomb Stoneware Company, Macomb Pottery Company, D Culbertson Stoneware Company, Clinton Stoneware Company, and Fort Dodge Stoneware Company. They were in business in Monmouth, Il. from 1906-1985. It is from a smoke and pet free home. Check out my other items!
