Gallery Label: 
During the second half of the 19th century and into the early 20th century, stoneware manufacturers commonly supplied local businesses with vessels designed for their products and marked with the retailer's name. Druggists, grocers, brewers, and ink suppliers ordered containers simply marked with their name, location, and sometimes a word describing the contents. Daniel M. Robinson was a crockery dealer at 523 8th Avenue, New York, between 1876 and 1888.
