Just like our drinking water stoneware crocks, the stands are also made in the USA hand turned the old-fashioned way. The actual height will vary slightly because each piece is hand turned. Generally, the height averages between 6-5/8” to 7” and the diameter averages between 8”- 10” depending on the crock size ordered. The drinking water crocks sit on the top of the stand which is unglazed to mate with the unglazed bottom of the crocks to keep it from sliding off the stand. Just as they were made in the early 1900s glazing the bottoms will stick in the kiln. Stoneware is heavy so the stand weighs 8 lbs by itself.
The standard color is priced in blue stripe or white. You may choose color coordination borders using the drop-down box at the top of the page to match your custom crock. The theme of the crock would then carry down to the stand in a coordinating border added around the top like the sponge border used on the rim of the sample wildflower bowl and wisteria cookie jar.
The white will be the same cream color as the blue stripe. Depending on where it is in the kiln the actual white colors may vary from the pictures between cream and white with some grayish hue or even towards a tan, beige color. Another characteristic of old-fashioned hand-turned pottery. It is best to order the crock and stand together so that the shop can best matchup the two pieces. Otherwise, they may not match if ordered at different times.
The standard blue stripe is usually ready to ship within 2-3 weeks. Because these are so popular stock is often limited and may take 3-4 weeks to make new ones and to ship. Most of the colors including plain white are custom made per order and may take 4-6 weeks to ship.
Stoneware Pottery is U.S.A made in Texas by a small family-owned and operated pottery company, which has been making quality pottery for over 22 years. Each piece is hand turned by a master potter, hand-painted or finished, and then coated with a lead-free glaze.
