Hello Richard,I'd be happy to speak with you about the crock.Just so you have a written record, the crock at the Ebenezer . Lawrence. FARRAR POTTERY WORKS IBERVILLE circa 1880's. The 5 gallon crocks would have a retail antique shop value of around 275-325USD in excellent condition. Taking into account that cobalt color I would put the value towards the higher end of the value spectrum assuming it is in clean shape.

Again I would be happy to further speak to you about the wood fired stoneware jug if you have any further questions.
