Redware Crock No. 294

Additional Information

From James Carley's notes: Cylindrical redware crock, 9" dia. 8 1/2" high. Unglazed outside except at the ear handles; inside a luscious mustard yellow. Fired upside down, causing an irregular line of glaze at the top. Glaze is chipped off in several places. Used for food storage, probably butter, and smelled it. Very likely Middlebury. Among the glazes used by Calb Farrar who made redware in Middlburg 1812-50 was a greenish yellow. Purchased Glens Falls, NY.
