Identification Break

I picked up this very old pottery pitcher at an estate auction yesterday, and though I spent a lot of time searching last night, I have been unable to identify who made this pitcher.  It's design is of roses climbing up lattice, and it is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.  It's 9 inches tall and fairly heavy.  I'd just like to know who made it so I can do some research on it to know it's age and to find out if I got a good deal on it (I think that I did - I paid $4 for it).  If anybody has any idea who might have made it, please leave a comment!  Thanks so much!


  1. Wish I could help you on this one. it is gorgeous! Good Luck and I hope someone can tell you a maker. It does remind me of a Hull teapot I have.

  2. Hi Michael,
    This sort of looks like a Shawnee piece. I have a planter in the same green color. Their pieces were usually labeled on the bottom, though. Let us know when you find out! On another note, we've already had a snow day here. I couldn't believe it. I'm looking forward to seeing your Christmas decorations. I found a couple Shiny Brites in a new shop here. You would really like this place - lots of midcentury finds. Good luck on your pitcher!
