S. Weiss Lamar, Indiana, 8 Gallon Merchant Crock

Super Mustard Stencil Decoration

Circa 1880s: Potted, decorated, and kiln fired in Cannelton, Indiana, this mammoth 16 1/2" tall eight gallon stoneware jar was brushed with dark chocolate brown Albany slip and stenciled with Cannelton's signature mustard slip decoration. Indiana stoneware expert and collector Dr. Anthony Charles Stringfellow mentioned to us that he has seen plenty of two gallon Weiss jars but has never seen one in a scarce eight gallon size. We are elated to offer for sale this rare 19th century Indiana merchant crock with no chips, cracks, or repairs. This strikingly handsome stoneware jar was probably meant to store pickles or sauerkraut and is sure to be the centerpiece of any collection of fine Indiana, Midwestern, or American stoneware.
