This 19th Century 2 gallon stoneware snuff crock is stamped "L.A. N 9 Water St. N-Y" and washed in cobalt blue. The crock has a strong attribution to Humiston & Warner of South Amboy, New Jersey circa 1830. Another crock with this exact form but a different Water St. address bears the mark of this early maker. The tobacco exporting business was apparently alive and well on Water St. in New York in the early 19th Century. This interesting shaped crock measures over 13" tall and just under 10" in diameter. The rim is slightly miss-shaped and there is a shallow flake to the brown Albany Slip near the top as shown. There is also a minor tight 3.5" hairline coming up from the base but overall, I'd say the crock is in very good to excellent condition. This is an interesting crock with a NYC history.
