I picked up this crock the other day - cheap. The paint was all peeling and ugly, so i cleaned it off quickly - which removed all but the black paint. I kind of like how it looks now w/ some of the paint showing. I was looking closely at it today and noticed that you can see a 'J. A. Bauer Pottery' and a '3' and 'Los Angeles, California' on it. So this is an early Bauer Pottery crock? it's really nice. i'd love to know more about the company at that time as well as the value of this crock. what kind of crock is it? Date? i think it's before 1928, when Andy Bauer died. The piece is hand-thrown on a wheel, from the looks of it.
