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 wonderful commemorative/advertising plate, circa 1905-1910, was created for Joseph Ruwitch & Sons, Norway, Michigan, owners of a large department store of the era. Decorated in a multi-color transfer design which is rare for Buffalo Pottery pieces of this type. The center of the plate depicts a view of the Ruwitch store, autos and patrons, in shades of brick red, brown and white with light blue-gray clouds floating overhead. The wide, embossed, border shades from light to dark blue-green with a gold edge. The brown back-stamp shows the buffalo image, "Buffalo Pottery" and "Joseph Ruwitch & Sons, Norway, Michigan". There are no cracks, chips or repairs; overall light crazing and gold wear on the rim. Great for the commemorative, advertising or buffalo pottery collector.
