Rare Two-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Cobalt Dog Decoration, Stamped "S. HART / FULTON", NY State origin, circa 1860, cylindrical crock with tooled shoulder, semi-squared rim, and applied lug handles, decorated with a slip-trailed design of a dog with striped body, standing on a grassy lawn with flower. Slip-trailed "2" with flourish to left of dog. Light cobalt highlights to maker's mark. Hart's typical dog motifs feature a more stylized figure with basket in its mouth. This design, lacking the basket, and assuming a somewhat more realistic appearance, is significantly rarer. Excellent, essentially as-made condition with in-the-firing heaviness to salt glaze and a slight warp to front.
