Rare Two-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Stenciled Cobalt Eagle Decoration, Stamped "J.C. WAELDE. / NORTH BAY," New York State origin, circa 1860, cylindrical crock with tooled shoulder, semi-squared rim, and lug handles, decorated with a crisp and dark stenciled design of a Federal eagle with spread wings and turned head, perched atop a slip-trailed branch. Eagle decoration is applied by sponging the cobalt, giving the figure a visually-appealing dappled texture. Slip-trailed "2" with dashes above. Brushed highlights to maker's mark. The eagle motif is one of the rarer North Bay stenciled designs. 7 1/4" vertical crack extending under right handle onto underside. Otherwise excellent condition with some staining to right side of crock under handle.
