    I have this old crock with indianhead inside circle with outer circle having 8 stars in it, large #4 underneath all in blue, it is 16" tall and has minor age cracks that don't go all the way through, as it remains water tight. Can anyone tell me something about possible maker, use, etc.

      Your butter churn is a piece of stoneware from the Cherokee line, made by the Louisville Pottery after 1906, which used the Blue Indian Head stencil mark.

      There's a new book about Kentucky Art Pottery that discusses the Louisville Pottery -- Clear as Mud: Early 20th Century Kentucky Art Pottery -- http://leoweekly.com/ae/book-clear-mud

      The company is still in business -- http://www.louisvillestoneware.com/story/

      Watch ebay to determine a value - condition is always a factor.
