Stoneware Bottles & Crocks

IMG_6551

I am loving the look of these antique salt-glazed stoneware bottles and crocks- especially the three bottles with the advertising. These date back to the end of the 19th Century and hail from England, Ireland and Canada. Also in the photo are three gin bottles from Amsterdam and a large wine jug in the front from France or Belgium. A few little marmalade crocks and a butter crock round out the group. I love the pocked surface and iridescence of the salt glaze, the natural creams, golds and browns and handmade forms of these pieces.
