Rare Six-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Cobalt Woman and Floral Decorations, Ohio origin, circa 1870, cylindrical crock with tooled shoulder, semi-rounded rim, and applied lug handles, decorated with a slip-trailed design of a woman's torso with styled, upswept hair and buttoned blouse. Decorated above with a slip-trailed looping "6", underscored by a flourish. Reverse decorated with a two-stemmed flowering plant below another looping "6" with flourish below. Based on the distinctive six-gallon capacity inscription, this crock was likely made at the same pottery as the "Elephant and Rider" crock sold by Crocker Farm, Inc., in 2005 and 2013. Excellent, essentially as-made condition. A 4 1/4" Y-shaped line under left handle, not visible on interior. Left handle with a tight spider crack and a small flake. Chips to right handle. A few spots of staining. H 13 1/2".
