Milk Crock

Ted held this milk crock up for me. It's unsigned but clearly from the Catawba/Lincoln Co. area of NC. It has a little blue "flare" on one side that is probably caused by a little rutile bearing rock or stone. We talked about going to the flea markets back n the 80's looking for old pots. Ted and I used to find these pots for $10 or so, really cheap by today's prices, and since Ted had a job he usually would do the buying. Even at $10 it was more than I could afford as a college art student.
