Very Rare Four-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Cobalt Eagle-and-Banner Motif, Stamped "NEW YORK / STONEWARE CO. / FORT EDWARD, N.Y.," circa 1875, cylindrical crock with squared rim and applied lug handles, decorated with a large slip-trailed design of a flying eagle holding a waving banner in its beak. Strong color and excellent detail throughout, including striped and spotted embellishments to the eagle's wings and neck as well as the banner. While similar motifs were produced with some regularity in West Troy, NY, this design is exceptionally rare in the Fort Edward stoneware tradition. A fine example from one of the state's most important potting centers. Excellent condition with a small chip to one handle, a shallow 7/8" chip to interior of rim, a 1 1/2" surface line above one handle (not visible on interior), and some water glass staining.
