Been finding pieces for over 50 years myself.It is definitely a neat piece. Sometimes digging around here I find chunks of these things all over for some reason.
Really cool piece of info, thank youBeen finding pieces for over 50 years myself.
Not willing to acquire one to see if freezing it full of water will break it.
I'd expect ice on top first. Then growing downward. Vs expanding upward.
Perhaps putting pressure on the edge of the crock at it's top first.
Then there is good ol "droppage".
And they just broke probably.
Here's some comments when I searched for why they broke.
Not really any answer , but some more explanation of uses!
I hate to sound stupid, but I am too young (and never taught) about old crocks and jugs. Antique crocks and jugs can be very collectible, and I have sold many crocks and jugs in our flea market business. When these crocks were new, did a food product come packed inside the crocks and jugs? If...www.homesteadingtoday.com
Dead probablyWhere would you be , and with what to show for it , if you hadn't changed course 35 years ago?
You've certainly got it sorted out for the better.
Not that it didn't take life altering effort only you could control!
Welcome back Bart.Finally back home...sorry I missed all the fun on board. It was a long trip, and I had no time for hunting very much. Work started at 6am, and most days didn't end until 10-11pm. Wi-fi and internet were shaky almost everywhere which made it very frustrating to post on t-net. Any way im back and ready for a keg of rum !!
Nice ones John,I like that old brass 10 Gauge.even if it,s been plowed a few times. Scarce in 10 Ga.Here's yesterday's finds. A tiny babies spoon(plow was not kind to it), this I really like first I've ever seen like it a full metal Winchester 10 gauge shotgun shell sadly plowed to death as well but I'm happy to have it first I've seen( maybe more significant but so damaged), and a medallion that looks quite old afraid to mess with it much as I screw stuff up. Has moose head with a banner that goes down it that appears to have had something written on it but can't make it out say I O F across the top. I have till the 23rd to do more searching maybe I should. 23rd they plant sweet potatoes and once that happens my mine is up for metal detecting on this land.

Confirmation, yes! Thank you. I bet there are a lot in your area, also. I think you might be closer to Roseville.
Feeling better, I hope?
