When I lived in Wisconsin I used to go to a lot of yard sales. My children were little and it was one of their favorite things to do. Most of the items I bought were for them...clothes, toys and books. Every now and again I would find a treasure just for me. A treasure like these pitchers. I found these at a neighborhood yard sale during the late 1980s. I paid $5.00 for the 5 inch pitcher and $6.00 for the 6 inch one. "One dollar an inch" the man at the yard sale said. According to an antiques dealer that I showed them too about ten years ago they were made in the late 18th century...that makes them well over 100 years old. Each one has a tiny chip near the spout...otherwise they're in excellent shape! I'm just over half their age. I wish I could claim the same!!
I know very little about these pitchers ~ I haven't been able to find much at all on the internet. They might be from Robinson Ransbottom Pottery. This website shows pictures of pitchers almost identical to these. It suggests they might be Roseville pottery. But it doesn't matter what they are because I love them exactly as they are.....nameless!
Of course if anyone out in blogland knows anything about them, I'd be happy to hear from you!
