This is a honey / maple syrup pitcher from Purinton Pottery. It is hand-painted in the Petals pattern. Circa 1950. It stands 6 1/2" tall. It is marked on the bottom with "Purinton Slip Ware." There is one small ding on one side of the handle, significant crazing, a sort of frosted effect on the red flower petals, a few light yellow/brown spots on the handle, body and inside of the pouring spout.
Purinton Pottery operated from 1941 until import competition forced the business to close in 1959. The Purintons produced pottery with lovely hand-painted designs on creamy white clay in many creative shapes in a wide variety of multicolored free brush patterns. The designs and forms used of their molds were original and unique. Their dinner and breakfast plate were an industry first off-round shape.
