Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful 2 Gallon Preserve Jar made and stamped for "C. Vaupel, No. 11 Union Ave., Williamsburgh." Vaupel made crockery in Brooklyn, N.Y. from 1877 to at least 1894 (William Ketchum, Jr., American Stoneware, p. 63). It is an uncommon mark.
The bird indicates that Vaupel's decorators were somehow interconnected with those of Samuel Brady and John J. Ryan who ran their pottery in Ellenville, N.Y. from 1878-1897 (Ketchum, p. 66). The birds used on both potteries are virtually identical.
This beauty features a Tall and Slender Form with the Company Advertising Stamped on the Shoulder with Cobalt Wash and a Fine Bird on a Branch in Dark and Rich Cobalt typically found on Brady and Ryan Stoneware. Stands 12 1/2" tall.
Excellent Condition. Minor nibbles and a 1/2" chip on the inner seating ring where a lid could sit, and minor scattered wear. That's it! No top rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. Very clean example.
