This beautiful Niloak Pottery blue pitcher with embossed flowers was made in Benton, Arkansas. The four-sided geometrical pitcher is a true work of American Art Pottery. Glazed inside and out in a glossy cornflower blue, the sides are embossed with various, large flowers that overlap and swirl over the entire pitcher. The pulled spout and the handle are molded so as not to distort the overall rounded rectangular shape.
This flat-topped pitcher is 7-inches tall. The opening is 4-1/4 inches side to side and 5-1/2 inches across the spout. The embossed sides are each 4-3/8 inches across.
It is marked with an incised “Niloak” which is Kaolin spelled backward, this pitcher was made by Eagle Pottery, Benton, Arkansas circa 1931 to 1947.
There are a couple of glaze pops on one flower near the pouring spout. There is no other damage to this wonderful piece.
