Here's a pretty, blue and white antique crock in very good condition. It's unmarked but was manufactured by The Nelson McCoy Stoneware Co. in the 1920s. Although it sure looks like a butter crock, this piece is refered to as a salt box in the McCoy Pottery Book by Sharon and Bob Huxford.
Measuring 4 7/8 inches high, it has a diameter of about 7 1/4 inches across. This piece has a waffle weave pattern with relief molded roses in blue, all the way around the center. The top and bottom areas bordering the edges are also coated in blue glaze. In addition to butter or salt, these stoneware containers also were used to hold grease or animal fat. There's a spot near the opening rim that could be a chip or perhaps just a manufacturing defect. It's in overall very good condition and free of cracks and hairlines. You'll find the ones with daisies and chrysanthemums but the rose pattern is scarce.
