Highly Decorated Akron OH 6 Gallon Water Cooler

Circa 1870s: This massive Northeast Ohio water cooler stands just over 15" tall and is nearly 12" in diameter. The central flower is common in the work of Akron potter Freierick Weeks, and the cooler was most probably makde by the firm Weeks and Cook sometime in the decade after the Civil War. Decorated from top to bottom and on the handles, this tremendous water cooler even sports a series of unusual cobalt lines around the outside of the bunghole. Condition is excellent with staining and minor typical chipping on the inside lip of the bunghole, two minor chips on one handle, and no cracks or repairs. This is a fantastic example of Ohio in a wonderfully unusual form.
