Stoneware Presentation Churn

Small semi-ovoid stoneware churn originating from Western, PA or Ohio circa 1860. Given it's size and decoration with initials and inverted hearts, it was was most likely made as a presentation piece. On one side there are the initials SWC underscored by an inverted heart. On the opposite side there is an incised number four with two conjoined inverted hearts. The rim is heavily cobalt brushed and the handles are sponged with spots. There has been a professional repair to several small 1/4" chips on the rim and base. Height - 7".
