Rare Three-Gallon Stoneware Crock with Cobalt Bird Decoration and Error Stamp, Stamped "N.A. WHITE & CO. BNIGHAMTON. (sic)," NY State origin, circa 1870, cylindrical crock with tooled shoulder, semi-rounded rim, and applied lug handles, decorated with a slip-trailed design of a bird perched on a flowering vine. Cobalt highlights to maker's mark and capacity mark. This crock bears a rare error in the maker's stamp, in which the "B" and "N" in "BINGHAMTON" are transposed. A 1 1/8" in-the-making base flake on reverse. An approximately 6 1/2" thin crack from rim on front. A faint 4" hairline from rim on left side of crock's front. A 2" in-the-firing surface line from rim, visible on interior only. A minor chip to interior of rim. Some fry to cobalt.
