Pacific Clay Company was founded in 1892 by a merger of several Southern California pottery companies. They created utilitarian pottery for the home as well as art. In 1942, they stopped creating these items and turned towards brick and sewer tile production. The company is still in business today but never went back to making its original products.
This 6 gallon ceramic crock would have been used in the early 20th century home for fermentation or food storage. You can clearly see the Pacific Clay logo proudly representing its origins from Los Angeles, California.
We thought it would make a lovely planter, so we potted it with the something we thought was fitting; the beautiful and ever resilient snake plant.
14” high - includes snake plant.
