My husband and I recently came across this 8 gallon salt glaze crock and are hoping you can provide us with some basic information on it (identification of the piece, the time period it was produced, the rarity/desirability of the item and a range of possible value). I have included photos which show there are two cracks on the back. I high-lighted the two cracks with tape so the size is more visible. The cracks are on the outside and inside of the crock.
Jessica, This is a 8 gallon very desirable ribcage crock made in the 1880’s. A very well marked one could bring as much as $3000. With the lines in back still could bring $1200.
