    Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Rare 2 Gallon Pitcher that reads, "Manufactured for Geo. Theis & Sons."

     

    According to the census records of Lee Township, Monroe County, Ohio dated July 18, 1870 (which come with this pitcher), Theis was a merchant there.  

     

    Circa 1870, this beauty was made in Southwestern Pennsylvania at Greensboro or New Geneva. 

     

    It features a Squared Rim, Tall Neck, Tooled Shoulder, Bulbous Base, and Cobalt Decoration.  Dashes frame both sides of the spout, leaves grace each side of the neck, vining cascades across the shoudler, and the merchant advertising proudly displays on the base bouyed by a freehand capacity number flanked by dashes and underscored by a stripe.  Stands 13" tall. 

     

    Excellent Condition.  A chipping on the underside of the spout and some light staining on the back.  No inner rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
