Also known as a "refrigerator jug," this utility ware pitcher by Edwin Knowles appeals by simplicity; with the still life fruit design of a pear, apple, plum and blueberries and it's even simpler lines. The estimated manufacture history is 1930's to 1940's. The pottery designs then were often decal transfers under the glaze. The design on this 48 oz. pitcher remains in excellent condition with the pastel colors as bright as ever. The pitcher is thick and substantial and offers a broad "ice" lip. The ridged base shows a small crack as pictured which is the only flaw noted. No significant crazing, no chips. A lovely piece of history to display. The jug measures 6 1/2" tall x 9" wide and 2 3/4" across.
