In 1932, Rex Johncox took over a business from a man he worked for and started the Rex Johncox Company. Rex’s son, Keith, took over the business in 1975 and ran it until he died in 2016. Keith had also served as mayor of Onsted for a while. I am thankful for this information that came from Rex’s grandson.
This butter crock was made in 1987 by the Louisville Stoneware Company to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the Rex Johncox Dairy. The bottom of the crock states “Made for Rex Johncox” and “For Butter Only.”
The stoneware crock is in very good shape, with only a pinpoint speck on the inside, which probably happened during the kiln firing. It’s almost invisible.
The crock measures 5 inches in diameter and stands 3 inches high.
