Rare Six-Gallon Stoneware People Crock with Cobalt Shepherd and Pear Decorations, probably Uniontown, PA, circa 1860, straight-sided crock with ribbed handles and incised banding, decorated on the front with a brushed cobalt person in a toga or dress holding a shepherd"s crook. Above this design is a brushed cobalt vine with leaves and three large pears. Reverse of jar decorated with a cobalt "6". Probably produced by potter Norval Greenland in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. People decorations are considered rare and quite desirable. The fact that this example is decorated with a shepherd certainly adds to its folk art appeal.
