RARE 1870’s Verona, Pennsylvania stoneware merchant advertising crock. Measures approximately 9″ tall and 6″ wide. Made into a lamp at some point in time. Not sure how the integrity of the advertising crock was affected as there is an attached wooden base attached to the bottom. I have not tried to take this lamp apart. This advertising crock dates to 1875 and has stenciled cobalt advertising. The lettering reads’JNO. CRIBBS & SON / DEALERS IN DRY GOODS, GROCERIES, AND ALL KINDS OF LUMBER / VERONA, PA’. Freehand cobalt stenciling is seen in the middle and on the right-hand side. Minor chipping seen around the upper rim as pictured.
