Any makers marks anywhere? The crackling in the glazing give it a great look. I want it.

did some research after i cleaned it and found marking that says mccomb stoneware co on the bottom and found out that they stopped putting mccomb stoneware co on there after 1913 when the plant they were made in burnt down and after that they marked them mccomb pottery co from then on on tell the late 50s so this one in theory is from 1886 to 1913. just sitting in the river waiting for me to find it lol

Do you mean Macomb, Illinois? They made a lot of pottery. I find pieces in central Illinois all the time.

Macomb Stoneware Co. and Macomb Pottery Co. were two separate stoneware companys in business about the same. They were two of the six potteries that combined to form Western Stoneware Co. This site will give you a little more on this. https://www.westernstoneware.com/history
