Item 4516

 

Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Pair of Blue and Gray Molded Pitchers.

 

They were made by White Pottery of Utica, N.Y. between 1890 and 1907 when they made their fancy molded stoneware. You can see this piece in The Blue and The Gray: Oneida County Stoneware: Exhibition and Catalogue Essay by Christopher Bensch, p. 66.

 

These pitchers depict a Revolutionary War Era Fife and Drum Corp on One Side and a Profile of George Washington on the other.  Each decoration is in a cartouche on a bark-like background.  The taller pitcher is 8 1/2" tall and the shorter one is 7 1/2".

 

Very Good Condition.  The larger pitcher has a nearly invisible 1 1/2" hairline from the rim to the cartouche (closeup 1), a pinhead-nibble in George's hair, and a smal X in the glaze below George. The smaller pitcher has a shallow 1/4" on the left side of the spout (closeup 2) and a pinhead-size nibble on the drum on one side and two in George's hair on the other.
