"Vanderbllt" is the pattern name of this elegantly simple, handled pitcher from the New York Central Railroad. It dates from between 1914 and 1935, the period when the New York Central used the name "Lines." The band around its neck is understated in pastel greens and oranges, and very deco looking with its geometric design. A brilliant gold overglaze line circles around following the top rim.
At four inches tall, this was a very flexible piece, and depending on the number of diners at the table could have been used for serving milk, syrup or cream.
CONDITION is lovely, with NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs. Even the spout is perfect. It is free from discoloration and spotting on the rim. The gold decoration is extremely good with very little wear.
This pitcher is fully and correctly bottom marked as having been made by the Ohio Pottery Company for the New York Central, which purchased Vanderbilt ware through the L. Barth and Son distributing company.
