Ope, two gallon Flack and Van Ardsdale Crock, Cornwall.

Museums share – this open two gallon crock by Cornwall’s Flack and Van Arsdale was recently given to us by the Brant County Museum in Brantford, as it did not fit their collection policy.

In the past year we have transferred or directed items to the Lost Villages Historical Society, the SD & G Highlander’s Regimental Museum and the Glengarry Archives.

The above tan bodied crock, is 30 cm tall, mouth dia. 18 cm and base, 21 1/2 cm.

It has an interior chocolate brown glaze.

Flack and Van Arsdale operated in Cornwall from 1868 until around 1907.  The Cornwall Pottery operated for a few years before them.
