Delight in the distinctive style of these hand-painted roses on a Skyline jug from Cash Family Pottery. This pitcher with hand painted Roses was made by Cash Family Pottery during the mid 1960's. It features a spray of two large, hand painted, dusty pink roses with smaller buds on a background of green leaves and thorny brown stems. There is a matching green elongated leaf on the handle.
The Cash Family Pottery was established in Erwin, Tennessee, the same town as the better known Southern Potteries. The history is both confusing and intertwined. Southern Potteries first opened under the name "Clinchfield Pottery" around 1917, becoming Southern Potteries in 1920. Ray Cash began working for them sometime between 1920 and when he left to serve in World War II. When he returned in 1945, he and his wife, Pauline, opened "Clinchfield Artware Pottery." The name was changed to Cash Family Pottery in the 1950's. The factory closed in the 1980's. The Cash Family Pottery bought several of the molds from Southern Potteries, makers of Blue Ridge, when they closed in 1957. Therefore, many of their pieces are similar, though all are hand painted resulting in some differences.
It measures 5 inches in diameter at its widest point, and it is 8-1/2 inches tall to the top of the soaring spout.
This pottery pitcher, made in the Skyline shape, dates to the 1960's, based on the mark and the two letter Tennessee abbreviation. The backstamp, in black script, reads "Cash Family, Hand Painted, Erwin, TN." In good condition, there are several glaze pops, and a tiny 1 mm smooth old edge chip on the rim near the top of the handle.
