Stoneware Crock

Description
John Burger managed Nathan Clark’s Rochester, New York pottery beginning in 1841, before Clark sold his share of the business to Burger and Thompson Harrington in the early 1850s. Burger’s salt-glazed stoneware is similar to Clark’s work; both are known for their cobalt flower designs with strongly accentuated leaf patterns and generous use of color. The shape of this jar reflects the shift around the 1860’s towards straight-sided rather than ovoid pots.
