Estate Sale Finds - Two Gallon McCoy Stoneware

This post is not really garden or home renovation related.
I just wanted to show off the amazing McCoy stoneware crock I picked up at an
estate sale for almost nothing. It's in perfect condition, with a not so perfect lid.

 Based on what I read here, it's a 2 gallon McCoy stoneware crock
made between 1927 and 1934. I've read elsewhere that these crocks were used
pre-refrigerators to store everything from food to flour.
 
What am I going to use it for?  No clue...fermented pickles perhaps.
Anyone jealous?  Probably not...whatever...I love it!
