Catawba Valley Pottery Alkaline Glaze Pitcher Circa 1865. From my own Catawba Valley Pottery collection, this primitive alkaline glaze stoneware crockery pitcher made in North Carolina in the1860-1870s has always been a favorite. It has so much character with its "orange peel" textured finish, outside and inside glaze, applied handle, and wonderful dark green/brown mottled color with runs of glaze here and there. To be such an old piece, it's in excellent condition! Has no cracks; just one chip on the top rim with several other flea bites on the bottom. (see photos) The bottom is partially glazed and has a rough finish in its center. It has one small chunk of clay on the edge that makes it sit a little unevenly, but I think that adds to its charm.
Measurements: 6" tall; 4-3/8” diameter opening; 3-1/2" long handle; weighs about 2 lbs.
