Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this Rare Bamboo Pitcher Stein made by the Whites Pottery of Utica, N.Y.
Dating between 1890 and 1907, this piece is a wonderful example of the skill that the Whites Pottery had gained in molded stoneware during those years. It is featured in Christopher Bensch, The Blue and the Gray: Oneida County Stoneware, p. 68.
I have only had one other of these to sell in the past 20 years and this one is different for having been made as a stein!
This beauty features the Form of Bamboo Tied with a Double Course of Rope. Cobalt accents to the bamboo joints and knots, and a rope handle complete the decoration. Measures 7 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A 1/2 chip on the rim behind the spout (closeup). That's it! No inner rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration. The lid has some pitting on the underside, presumably from acid drinks.
