The Mysterious Greensboro, Pennsylvania Crock


A few weeks ago a woman contacted me through email. She told me she had a crock that she wanted to sell and wondered if I was interested. She also wanted to know if I knew anything about it. ¬†She told me she dug it up. Dug it up? Now someone doesn’t just go out and dig up a beautiful stoneware crock, pilule so I asked more about that. She said it would found on a pioneer homestead in a national forest. Huh? Dug it up in a national forest! Now I was really curious. You don’t just walk into a national forest and start digging, pharmacy and then find a beautiful crock in perfect condition! A pioneer homestead? I want to know more!!! I asked what she wanted for it, remedy she told me, and I asked if she would be willing to send it to me before I paid her, so that I could see it in person. She did send it. The crock was much nicer then I expected. Bigger too. As you can see it’s a beauty, but I still wonder about that story. I paid her for the crock and emailed her to let her know that it arrived safe and sound. I have not heard from her since, but I am going to try emailing her again. I want to know more. This whole thing is a bit of a mystery to me. Was it really dug out of the ground on a pioneer homestead? Don’t you want to know too?

This beautiful crock will be for sale in Carole’s Country Store along with several new and wonderful items very soon.

    …You. must. find. that. woman. *giggle* ;o) What an absolutely wonderful crock! Gosh, to think that things like that are still buried under earth waiting to be discovered. Mind boggling isn’t it? What a great find!

    …I was shopping in your store the other day and was looking at the Santa Tin you have in there and couldn’t help but notice the background view out of the window the tin is sitting in, is that your yard and outbuilding in the background? It is just beautiful! And if that is your yard and such, can I come live with you please? I’m not a bother at all, I’m quiet, don’t eat much, I do windows and will pay my room & board in a timely manner. Lemme kno’ ‘kay? ;o)

    …Thank you for sharing this wonderful crock and its story! I so want to know more about this pioneer homestead too. :o )

    It is possible to dig up a crock ! In 1975 my husband and I rented a house in Chester Co. Pa. It was a restored log cabin and beautiful. One beautiful, fall afternoon, my husband went out into our woods and began chopping wood. I was bored so I went out to watch. I happened onto what I would call a dump area. I had a stick and was pushing things around and I saw a piece of gray pottery with blue cobalt on it. As a collector, I was immediately interested. I spent the rest of the afternoon digging. I unearthed a crock that was missing a rim piece along with 3 other missing pieces. I found all the pieces with the exception of one. I glued together what I found. I still have the crock today and it’s one of my most prized crocks.I just turn it to its best side and it looks great on the shelf. It brings back happy memories of our time in Chester County and a care free day in the country.
