Rare Three-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Chick Pecking Corn Decoration, Stamped "OTTMAN BRO'S / & CO.. / FORT EDWARD, N.Y.," circa 1880, cylindrical crock with semi-rounded rim and applied lug handles, decorated with a slip-trailed cobalt design of a chick pecking kernels of corn from a stylized ground. The large head and small body of the bird suggest it is meant to represent a baby chicken and not the typical adult one finds on such crocks. Provenance: Lynn White Collection, Readfield, ME. Significant restoration to reverse and underside. Small chip on interior of rim. H 10 1/2".
