This 10.5" tall approx. 1 gallon unsigned stoneware crock is heavily decorated in 3 large cobalt blue flowers and leaves and has an Albany slip interior. There are also a few other spots of blue below the flowers and several incised lines under the top rim the potter added for an extra accent. I would attribute the crock to Richard Remmey of Philadelphia circa 1860's. CONDITION: Good. there are several shallow chips on the inner top rim as shown. There is also a 1" shallow glaze miss or kiln touch that is into the blue on the side as shown. Interior has some light lime deposits. There are no cracks, lines or repairs. Please go to Rubylane (click above) to see all the photos.
This unmarked white ceramic 19th C. apothecary jar stands 10.5" tall and is in excellent condition. This would be a great item for kitchen or bath.
This 19th Century 2 gallon stoneware snuff crock is stamped "L.A. N 9 Water St. N-Y" and washed in cobalt blue. The crock has a strong attribution to Humiston & Warner of South Amboy, New Jersey circa 1830. Another crock with this exact form but a different Water St. address bears the mark of this early maker. The tobacco exporting business was apparently alive and well on Water St. in New York in the early 19th Century. This interesting shaped crock measures over 13" tall and just under 10" in diameter. The rim is slightly miss-shaped and there is a shallow flake to the brown Albany Slip near the top as shown. There is also a minor tight 3.5" hairline coming up from the base but overall, I'd say the crock is in very good to excellent condition. This is an interesting crock with a NYC history.

This miniature pewter spout lamp with triangular pewter under tray dates to the early 1800's. The lamp is complete and is in excellent condition. It measures only 4.5" tall. The unusual under tray has a lot of character with an old patina, dents and wear. Used as a bedtime lighting devise, this would make a great addition to your early lighting collection.
Dating from the 2nd quarter of the 19th Century, we have strong reasons to believe that this cant-sided paint decorated utensil carrier is attributed to John Rupp (1809-1899) of Hanover, Pennsylvania. The small sized carrier features the original red over lighter red paint decoration and is constructed with rabbited corners and tiny iron square nails. The interior of the box shows good wear and overall it is in excellent condition. Measures 13 1/2" x 9 3/4" x 3" tall. More photos on Rubylane.

This large early 19th Century treen compote was turned on a primitive lathe. It now shows wonderful patina and wear, and best of all is how it has become distorted from age and shrinkage. Measuring about 13.5" in diameter and 9" tall, the compote is in good condition despite a crack in the bottom of the bowl and two minor chips on the base. This is an ideal bowl for displaying stone fruit as it was while in our personal collection. An outstanding early wooden compote! More photos on Rubylane.

There is a slight loss to the tip of on of his horns but overall he is in very good condition and retains his original paint and has no repairs. Not just for cow lovers!
