I purchased this at an auction along with some other crocks, I am curious to know more about it. It is stamped J.B. Maxfield Milwaukee on the front. The only info I can find about it is that the company stopped producing pottery in the late 1800's. Any info about this is and its worth, is greatly appreciated!

    John B and Amos Maxfield purchased the pottery works of O.F. Baker in Milwaukee in 1854. In 1855 Amos sold out to his brother in 1858 John stopped making stoneware. appears that all of their decorated stoneware was signed, but many pieces are not decorated. Dave
