Knotts & Swindler Palatine WV 2 Gallon Storage Jar

Circa 1870s: We love the large block lettering and slightly of center two gallon capacity mark on this neat salt glazed storage jar manufactured by the Palatine, West Virginia, pottery firm Knotts and Swindler. Condition on this piece is excellent with a large glazed over factory stoneware pop on the jar's side and a glazed over factory flake on the inside of the jar, both of which add to its folksy appeal. Good West Virginia crockery is tough to find, and this handsome cobalt decorated jar is an excellent example of the utilitarian wares produced in rural Appalachia during the final quarter of the 19th century.
