Upton Stucky Blue Decorated Stoneware Churn

Loogootee, Indiana

Circa 1870s-1880s
: Here is a rare cobalt stenciled and freehand decorted 4 gallon stoneware churn potted by Upton Stuckey in Loogootee, Indiana. Upton and his father Martin, the first potter in Martin County, Indiana, and one of the first potters in the state, owned the pottery in Loogootee from 1842 until 1892, the year after Martin’s death. The churn's stencil decoration reads "MANUFACTURED -BY- UPTON STUCKY" above a classic hand painted Stuckey flower. The reverse side is stamped with a backwards 4 to denote the churn's capacity. Measuring 18" in height to the top of its scarce and distinctive original lid, this outstanding piece of 19th century Indiana stoneware is in excellent condition with only a minor flake to the underside of one handle and a couple minor flakes to the lid. This is the finest piece of antique Indiana pottery we have offered in our 15 years in business, and we are sure the new owner will love this salt glazed churn as much as we do.
