American Stoneware is a type of stoneware pottery popular in 19th century North America. The vernacular term "crocks" is often used to describe this type of pottery
Antique stoneware crocks once played an integral role in kitchens by allowing foods like butter to be stored and pickled vegetables to be made in watertight containers before the invention of refrigeration. They were usually covered in a salt glaze and often decorated using cobalt oxide to produce bright blue decoration. Today, antique crocks are a decorative collector's item loved by many.
