Both side of the dough board are in beautiful condition, with one side showing a little more usage and three minor burns on the edge.

This pair of Islesworth Dutch Room stoneware mugs came from our personal collection. The late 19th C. mugs were probably made in Philadelphia or Haddonfield, NJ for the tavern that was located in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Both mugs are in excellent condition with no chips, lines or repairs. They measure 4.5" tall and feature cobalt blue stripes and blue accents to the lettering. The bodies were molded with two rows of beading and handles were applied. I will sell them separately for $80 each or $150 for the pair.
Price: $150/pair or $80 each

The main feature is a significant blue floral decoration that covers the one side of the crock. The rarely seen Hamilton & Co. makers mark is on the reverse side. CONDITION: The crock is in good condition with no cracks, lines or repairs. You can see there is one chip under the lip and a shallow chip on the base. There are 3 stone holes next to the decoration as shown. The crock is slightly drooping to the right on the top. The base is also slightly curved thus the felt pads to eliminate rocking.
