Henry Schofield was an expert potter that worked from the 1850's on in Chester County, Pennsylvania and later into the early 20th C. in Cecil County, Maryland. This particular piece of Schofield redware was his signature design- a double handled redware crock with fluted rim and distinctive stamped design around the mid-section. What I particularly like about this crock is not only the condition but the outside has a thin clear glaze that sets this crock apart from most Schofield examples of this design. The crock stands 6" tall and is excellent condition. The interior is finished with a heavier glaze with manganese spots. An exceptional example of Schofield's signature work!
This circa 1875-1885 cobalt blue decorated stoneware crock was produced by James Hamilton of Greensboro, Pennsylvania. It was made for E.J. Miller & Son, an importer located in Alexandria, Virginia. The 1.5 gallon crock was expertly thrown with a tooled shoulder line and wide collar. The front of the crock is decorated with a stencil and 4 brushed lines. The interior of the crock is finished in an Albany slip brown glaze. The crock stands 10 3/4" tall and displays beautifully. There is a very faint hairline to the right of the stenciled design that is associated with a small filled chip. The interior of the crock has a repaired stone pop. Please see photos. A fine example of decorated stoneware from a highly desirable Western Pennsylvania maker. More photos on Ruby Lane.
This 2 gallon stoneware jug with cobalt blue stencil comes from Western Pennsylvania and dates to around 1880. I have seen this stencil on signed pieces from Greensboro. This particular jug has three "owl in flight" stencils and a number "2" capacity stencil. The glaze has an interesting speckled effect around the entire jug. There is a 1/2" chip on the spout and a spider crack on the side as shown. The jug measures 15 1/2" tall and about 8" in diameter. The form is slightly ovoid and would be considered a "beehive" shape.
This 6 quart stoneware pitcher signed "West Troy, Pottery." has a strong symmetric blue decoration with the date of 1882 in hand applied blue slip. The pitcher is in excellent condition with just a thin horizontal line in the handle and a short tight hairline from the base on the right side. Standing 10.5" tall, there are no repairs on this choice stoneware pitcher.
14 E. King Antiques is pleased to offer this circa 1840 solid tiger maple footstool with square, straight legs that are mortised into the top. The stool measures 16" x 6.5" x 6.5" tall and is in excellent condition with the original old, mellow finish. Note that there is an age crack in the top. Nice and sturdy, this stool would make an excellent riser for your folk art collection.
This 1/2" pine Pennsylvania document box dates from 1830-40 and has the original grey smoke paint decoration. The box is constructed with square nails and retains the original cast iron butt hinges and iron lock. Measuring 17 1/4" wide x 10 1/8" deep x 6 1/2" tall (not including the knob on top) the box is in good condition with no breaks or repairs. The lock is missing the hasp as shown and there was once a leather hinged wooden divider inside that is no longer there. The grey smoke paint was expertly applied and has the appropriate distress and wear for a 175 year old surface. We are selling this box out of our personal collection. More photos and items on our Ruby Lane website. Thanks for looking!
This well-crafted mid-1900's canvas-over wire swan decoy hails from North Carolina. Measuring 28" long x 19" tall x 11" wide, this impressive swan makes an elegant statement wherever he sits. His head and neck is carved solid wood and the body is wire and wood with heavy canvas expertly stretched over the wire. The paint is original and shows just the right signs of age. Overall, the decoy is in very good condition with just a worn spot underneath the swan's cheek where it isn't seen. Please check our Ruby Lane site for more photos.
This round 7 3/4" Pennsylvania redware pie plate is decorated with yellow slip and is in very good condition. There are signs of use and a few minor rim chips but no cracks, lines or repairs. The coggle edge plate has good color and contrast and the unglazed back is slightly black from baking.
This blue decorated stoneware jar is unsigned but is the work of B. C. Milburn of Alexandria, Virginia. The crock measures 8 3/4" tall and has a nicely formed rolled lip and two incised lines around the shoulder.

This 19th C. carrier with two finger holes was found in Pennsylvania. It is constructed of pine and was expertly joined with tiny square nails. The red paint is original and show the appropriate wear with distressing on the interior in particular from carrying utensils. Measuring 13" x 9.5" x 4.5" tall, the carrier is in excellent condition as shown. The simplicity of the lines and the excellent red paint makes this carrier a winner! Please check this item and others out on Ruby Lane for more photos.
This large, early 19th Century trencher was carved out of a solid piece of maple and hails from New England. We found it on a buying trip to Vermont. The bowl has a paint history of old dark Windsor green over light green (please see photos). Measuring 21 1/4" x 13 1/4" x 4 3/4" tall, the large bowl is in very good condition. There are no losses, just some distressing from use and a minor dry line in the bottom that doesn't go through. The interior of the bowl is clean with a warm patina and the paint on the outside is nicely worn and is authentic. A fine New England trencher!
This tiny 19th C. one pint stoneware canning crock with cobalt blue decoration is a truly rare find. Measuring only 5 3/4" tall and only 3 1/8" in diameter at the base, this was probably the smallest sized canning crock produced. It is not to be confused with the slightly taller but much fatter one quart canners. The nicely thrown crock features a trio of dark blue foliate designs on a tan glaze and there are two incised lines around the circumference. Probably produced in Eastern Pennsylvania, the diminutive jar is in excellent condition with just a minor shallow flake on the inner top rim. A nice little crock that fits in the palm of your hand!
This 1/2 Gallon vendor's script stoneware jug is a great size measuring only a little over 9" tall. It has the typical Bristol glaze and is decorated in cobalt blue with the hand written advertising reading " W Scott Gillespie, Kingston, NY" . These jugs were produced by the Fulper Pottery Co. of Flemington and Trenton, New Jersey in the late 1800's. This particular jug is in good to excellent condition with just a few small flakes around the spout and base. There were a large number of these jugs produced and they were all decorated by the same hand. The smaller sized jugs however with small town names or not New Jersey towns are favorites among collectors.
This wonderful pair of primitive 19th C. iron heart-shaped candle sconces have a nice original red painted surface. Measuring 5" wide x 6.5" tall x 3" deep, the diminutive sconces are in excellent condition.
This hollow-body life size Canadian Goose decoy dates from around 1960. It features the original paint and glass eyes. Measuring almost 23" in length x 15" tall, this elegant goose is in very good condition with some minor distressing and paint wear, especially on the tip of the tail as shown. Would make a wonderful centerpiece on a dining table or on top of a cupboard.
