D. L. Ormsby 1849






D. L. Ormsby (Star) 1849 Quart Sized Stoneware Mead
Here is an unusual 12-sided mead or beer in the chnunky quart size. It has two different debossed insignia areas, an oval near the shoulder, and a shield-shaped insignia near the bottom of the front, along the same side. Great shape.

Debossed: (in shoulder oval) D. L. ORMSBY / (star) / 1849 // (in shield near bottom) / PATENT / PRESSED / W. SMITH

Height:  10 1/4"  
Color: beige with darker speckles and a milk chocolate color in drips around the lip

Condition: structurally perfect with no chips, cracks, hairlines or dings. It has some spotty small crazing swiggle lines in spots from cooling, mainly around the neck and mentioned for total accuracy. There are a few spotty areas of light wear around the bottom. Neat example with crisp debossing.

Reference Number:  NJ35

Price: $90
