Hand-painted crock with two handles, stamped with the number 3, for three-gallon capacity. Distinctive characteristics include the hand-painted blue glaze leaf design over tan or brownish clay, finished with a glossy salt glaze finish.

Farmers and cooks prepared vegetables, such as cucumbers or cabbages, and placed them in the crock under a heavy lid to keep microbes such as mold out. Over a period of weeks, carbon dioxide would escape, and, by a Lacto-fermentation process, the contents of the crock were pickled.

Condition:
Wear consistent with age and use - some staining - minor cracks present - spots were glazing is missing on exterior
