This antique stoneware crock was made in New England by SB Bosworth, Hartford Ct.
It is a 4 gallon crock as indicated by the number four on the front which is also imprinted with the makers name and location.
It is also decorated with a large blue cobalt flower design. The blue cobalt was typically done by the master stoneware maker/owner since the cobalt was difficult to work with and took a skilled hand.
It measures 11" x 12" diameter
It has two chips one on the front lip and one on the side lip- which can be seen in pictures. No other chips, cracks or hairline cracks. The inside is clean.
