By the beginning of the 20th century, the attractive salt-glazed stoneware decorated with cobalt blue was no longer being produced.
In its place was a mechanically made, undecorated replica of the earlier handmade productions.
The stoneware pictured is a later piece probably made in the 1910-40 period. The 30 stamped in cobalt blue indicates that this crock is 30 gallons in size. The brown glaze on the inside and the upper half of the outside is called Albany slip. Albany slip is only used on American Stoneware and is a good differentiator from European stoneware. This crock could have been used by someone making pickles or wine, etc. Similar crocks are still being produced today. The crack deters it from being collectible, the value would be between $10 and $35.

Poul Kjaerholm Chair
Estimate: $250 - $500
Listed By: Chris Jepson
Location: Cos Cob, CT
Estimate By: Robert Chapman, Modernicus
This folding deck chair features a solid walnut frame with wound rope cording and dates to the mid to late 1960s. These types of chairs were imported en-mass from European countries like Yugoslavia and Romania. If the owner examines the frame closely, there should be found an impressed mark "YUGOSLAVIA". While the chair is not hugely valuable, it does reflect the decor of the 60s while maintaining a timelessness that is relevant in today's mid-century and modern enthusiast's vernacular. At $250-500, this is a great chair to start a collection or to complement an existing one.
Value: $250 - $500
