Antique high back blue and white stoneware salt crock. 'Daisy on Snowflakes' is the pattern name. This crock is shown in the 1981 book on Blue the book shows a picture of one on a catalog page with the same shape, lettering, coloring and daisy, but I cannot make out if the 'snowflake' pattern is on it since the catalog page is in black and white and not very clear. Most of the early American pottery companies made these utilitarian items including McCoy, Monmouth, Hull, Roseville, Weller, etc. This crock has the original lid and displays very well. It has a couple of minor flaws as expected for this type of early stoneware. It has a rough spot and a piece of clay waste near the back bottom area. It has one tiny fleabite near top backside rim. Two old small chips or gouges off underside of lid which don't show. The bottom dry area is a bit gouged/lumpy but it doesn't affect stance or even show. Some pinpops in the glaze and a tiny clay separation line on front. No cracks or hairlines and no major chips. The minor flaws are insignificant and do not devalue old stoneware such as this. Only large chips or cracks would devalue it. A rare piece to find with the original lid. Age est: late 1800's to 1910. Price is firm. 2/13scsr
Four vintage mini stoneware vessels. First is the brown/white Paden City Artware jug that is 3 inches tall. I thas a noticeable glaze depression in the body of jug but that is just how it was made. Next is a very cool crock with ears and vertical lines; 2.75 tall, no lid. Next is a 2 handles jug with cork stopper that is 3.75 tall. Last is a one handled jug that is 4.25 tall and has faint mark on bottom that I cannot make out. It has some glaze pops on it also. Cool minis if you don't have a lot of space to display stuff. These look cool on old wooden spice shelfs or children's cupboards. 12/12
Vintage Brown Pottery Casserole Or Covered Bean Pot Ovenware8
Early Vintage Brown Pottery Casserole or Covered Bean Pot, this piece dates to around the 1920's to 1930's. It has a ringed pattern and is an early piece, unsure of who the maker is, although it could be an early Watt Pottery piece. It is 9 1/2 inches across, the bottom is 3 3/4 inches deep and when the lid is on it is about 7 inches tall. The bottom is nice and roomy so it could also be used without the lid for serving salad or a main dish. The lid is curved up fairly high and it would work well to serve a main dish such as chicken. It is in excellent condition, no chips but has two small flea bites on the outside edge and no cracks but does have a spot on the inside edge and on the bottom that occurred when it was made. Overall a very unique piece, perfect addition to your kitchen or collection. Please see our other listings for additional pieces of vintage pottery.

Cool antique stoneware lidded crock. Bail handle. It does have some minor chips; one that shows just a little on bottom rim edge; one small chip on lid which doesn't really show when it is on the jar since it fits down into the jar. It has some clay waste near bottom rim on one side, and has some other small chippies/gouges off bottom which don't show, see pics. None of the flaws are uncommon on antique stoneware and do not devalue it like a large noticeable chip or crack would. It displays well despite the minor flaws as you can see. This item stands 7 inches tall x 5.5 wide. My guess is Weir, but it could be any of the early American pottery companies. The older books on Red Wing shows this type of crock; they call it a 'refrigerator jar'. It was likely for jam/marmalade or honey. Pics 7-8 from the 3/12 issue of Country Sampler mag. 6/12clest

Antique George Jones Crescent Potteries in c.1907) The company Operated the Trent Potteries in Stoke-upon-Trent, Staffordshire England. The diamond registration mark shown is from 1883. The company wes a Manufacturer of decorative earthenware and majolica-style wares c.1861-1951. From 1872 porcelain was also produced.

There are a few utensil marks on the face of the platter but no chips, cracks, repairs or crazing. Overall it is quite shiny and the transferware pattern is excellent. It has an exceptionally deep bottom or deep well, to hold lots of juice. Imagine a large Thanksgiving turkey or Christmas Goose, better yet prime rib in this huge meat platter.
