Exceptional Five-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Cobalt Deer Scene, Stamped "J. NORTON & CO. / BENNINGTON, VT," circa 1860, large-sized, cylindrical crock with tooled shoulder, semi-rounded rim, and applied lug handles, decorated with an elaborate slip-trailed design of a stag with turned head and heavily-spotted body, standing between a pine tree and large tree stump, atop profusely-shrubbed ground. Cobalt highlights to maker's mark and capacity mark. The finest Norton deer-decorated crock that we have ever offered, featuring exceptional size, detail, and color to the design and a large capacity to the vessel. A 7" crack from rim on reverse. A long horizontal Y-shaped crack to base area on front. Some minor spots of surface wear. A small chip to interior of rim.
