I was on a bottle hike behind a Amish farm in PA digging for bottles and saw the bottom of this Crock sticking out figured it was broken but to my surprise it was intact I flipped out . This is one on my favorites now because of the embossing of the Patent date Oct. 3rd 1882. The color is great as well as you can see next to a normal one always great to dig them . Just wanted to share with you guys and girls..

With a bit of research into the patent archives you may find some more info on who applied for the patent, and what made it unique. Nice find!

There is an article on this in the Sept. Oct. issue of Bottles and Extras put out by the FOHBC. The patent is actually for the design of the handle. It was made by the Summit Pottery Works in Akron OH. The pottery works was owned by Whitmore, Robinsons & Co.

The research was done by Mark Wiseman who wrote the article in the magazine. I just happen to reread that article a couple of days a go and when I saw the picture of your jug knew where to find the information and pass it on to you.
