Found this Salt Glaze, Stoneware Crock in upstate Cortland, NY. It measures 9 inches tall with a 7 inch diameter. On the front, in blue, is a stylized Tulip. CORTLAND is incised above the Tulip. It has great color and glaze in deep taupe with all over blue tint. Inside glaze, is deep sugar brown with smooth sheen. Given a few imperfections that one might expect to find with early pieces of American pottery, there is no lid, and on the back there is a barely visible, 2 ½ inch long hairline at top rim edge and a ¼ inch chip on the inner rim edge. This has not hindered the integrity of the crock. Please see photos. The crock has been washed clean and in what I consider good age-related condition, being 19th century. I like it. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
