Pottery, Stone JarAbout this object
A great example of a stone jar sold by Crockett & Blackham hardware store in Roxburgh, Central Otago, New Zealand.
Further information found on the South Canterbury Museum site about Harry Blackham:
Shortly after his return from war, Harry went to live in Roxburgh (originally from Timaru), where he became very involved in many activities. These included, in 1922, being a founding member of the Roxburgh Volunteer Fire Brigade, committee member of the Southland Pigeon and Canary Club, Bowling Club, Coal Creek Football Club, Athletic Sports Club, and he had possibly entered into a partnership in a grocery, drapery and hardware business with a man by the name of Crockett.
While the bottle is stamped with the township of Roxburgh it is most likely the bottle was manufactured elsewhere and the stamp is purely for origin of sale.Medium and Materials
