J. & E. Norton – STONEWARE JUG
Circa 1850 – 1859
This three-gallon jug was made and marked by ” J. & E. Norton, Bennington, Vt. “. As with most sizable pieces bearing elaborate designs, this jug was probably made on special order or at a higher price than ordinary production. The overall design was laid on in heavy blue glaze from a slip cup. The surface-glazed design is a Homestead Scene complete with a post and rail fence and a large maple tree.
J. & E. NORTON, BENNINGTON, VT, circa 1855, professionally restored cylindrical jar with rounded shoulder, applied jug handle, semi-rounded rim, and wonderful decorated design.
Dimensions: Height: 15 1/2”
