Large Antique Semi Vitreous Porcelain Pitcher - The United States Pottery Company Circa 1893-1922
This semi-vitreous porcelain antique pitcher was made by the United States Pottery Company in Wellsville, Ohio sometime between 1893-1922. With both the look and feel of ironstone, it is a hefty beauty with thick walls, delicate gold filigree around the rim, and a bouquet of pastel pink and yellow roses.
Antique pieces from the United States Pottery Company are real rarities these days. The Pottery was only in business for less than three decades, but what they were known for their exceptionally high quality of manufacturing and durability so they are prized pieces among collectors today.
