Default Who knows thier stoneware?? Help ID (heavy pic) UPDATE new items

I found these today in an old house that's been burnt down. I don't think these are that old but atleast early 1900s maybe? I have no idea when it comes to stoneware. Also what would the cone pd shape piece be used for? It looks like it has a vent hole but it's not burned on the inside so maybe just to keep foods warm?

(UPDATE) we went back and grabbed the rest. Pictures below in the comments

There was plenty of broken ones. The roof and the second and first floor all fell through the basement and the section that I was able to get in had these laying there missed from the debris. This is the second basement I found like this. The first one I went back the very next day and someone was bulldozeing the house in. There was some nice stuff down there all now gone..

If the crock with the #3 on it is not cracked it could bring $100.00. The blue on the crock is called flow blue. And very collectible. If you are looking to sell it take it to any auction house They usually charge you 25% auction fee to sell. I would go back and dig around for others. As if you can find a crock with any animal fr flower they can bring several hundreds.

Flip over the china pieces and look for markings. That will be a great help with the ID.

The coned piece is a chicken waterer, but should have a low dish or basin to sit in.

Those are some good looking cream risers, especially the one at the far right sitting inside the other. Any chance of better pic of it?

Nice little American salt glazed piece. I don't know how old it is, but that area of Pennsylvania was pretty heavily involved in making stuff from the mid 1800's to the 1920's. I think (just an opinion) that these look like they are on the newer side of that scale. Still really awesome finds. If you find any with hand painted cobalt decoration (not stamped cobalt) the prices go up pretty quickly.

I think the early utilitarian stoneware is really beautiful. But really it was the Tupperware of the day, use it till it breaks and pitch it. Buy some more.

That's awesome! I like old stoneware. The numbers are usually the size(gallons). Maybe these may help you in identifying your pieces..[url]https://www.pinterest.com/lisaelifritz/stoneware-identification/
