The Buffalo Pottery was named for it's city of origin, Buffalo, New York. Established in 1901 by the Larking Soap Company. The pottery was originally conceived to produce a marketing line for Larkin that would increase their soap sales. The Buffalo Pottery prospered and produced many different kinds of pottery for commercial use as well as art pottery.
This beautiful chintz transfer was named the "Geranium" pattern and could be purchased with soap wrappers and a small additional charge from the Larkin Soap Catalog from 1905 to 1910. The all-over cobalt blue and white decorations on this jug/pitcher consists of geraniums and their leaves. The piece was also made with multicolor decoration. The item measures 5 1/4" in height and 6 1/2' from spout-to-handle. Marked on the base "Semi-Vitreous - Buffalo Pottery - warranted underglaze" and geranium leaf design. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. A great piece of Buffalo Pottery.
