Description

Antique five gallon brown and white stoneware crok or whiskey jug with wooden cork, marked with the Burley & Winter Pottery blue heart.

“The Burley and Winter Pottery Company was a great American pottery company located in Crooksville, Ohio. Burley-Winter started its business in 1872 and it lasted until the mid 1930’s. Like many American pottery companies no longer in business, Burley-Winter’s early items included functional stoneware utility vessels, such as thunder mugs, chamber pots, slop buckets, tankards, cuspidors poultry fountains, chick feeders, pitchers and bowls, jugs, and crocks.

Many early pottery pieces have a heart symbol and embossed name on the bottom. Some pieces have an incised Burley Winter name and mold number on the bottom, and many others have no mark.

Later Burley-Winter items feature distinctive blended glazes on attractive gardenware and art pottery like urns, bulb bowls, jardinaires, oil and sand jars, vases, strawberry pots, bird bath and garden pool ornaments. BW also sold Halloween pottery pumpkins, cookie jars, and bean pots. Burley-Winter appears to have sold its products to numerous companies as well as individual customers. Some of their customers would have been farmers, florist shops, creameries, dairies, chemical companies, Kresges, and pickle companies.”
