here are some photos of my wife's stoneware crocks. They are located on display in our dining room, mostly on the old bucket bench that I found.
Personally, I prefer the ovoid shaped crocks, like the one on the floor by itself.
When we started collecting them, we would buy them, even if they were damaged. Now we look for undamaged only.
They came down quite a bit in value since we started collecting them, and I told my wife that the only way that we don't loose any money on them is to only purchase flawless crocks. We now have several jugs, snuff jars, and storage crocks from the early to late 1800's.
