Early Stoneware Brown Bros Arden NC 2gal Signed Crock
- Source: eBay
Nice early crock from one of the potters who started the pottery movement in Arden.
It measures 8 1/4 inches tall, 7 1/4 across the base, and 10 1/2 across the top.
It does look like it has a crack across the bottom on the inside but doesn't have it on the bottom. A shallow stress crack in the glaze is my best description.
No chips or cracks on the rim but it does have a pretty big inclusion on the left side about 5 inches from the logo on the rim.
Other inclusions and marks from manufacture but the ne on the rim is bigger than normal.
Please see all the pictures.
Quite a heavy hand thrown crock made of local orange red clay.
Ships for 10 1/2 pounds plus optional insurance.
Can be picked up in Abingdon VA.
