J. and E. Norton Bennington, Vermont 2 Gallon Cake Crock

Profuse Cobalt Decoration

Circa 1850s: The J & E Norton mark was used 1850-1859 when Julius and Edward Norton ran the family pottery in Bennington VT. This rare two gallon cake crock stands just over 7 1/2" tall has no chips, cracks, or repairs, and is decorated over most of its field with the traditional Norton cobalt floral spray. This piece probably never had a lid and was meant to have cheese cloth stretched over its lip and tied off with twine. This is a scarce and interesting form from one of the premier 19th century American families of potters.
