This small, handled pitcher is a hard to find relic from the Loon Lake House, a prominent resort destination in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State during the late 1800s-early 1900s. It is graced by a crisp, sharply detailed side logo in dark green, suggesting the pine forests blanketing the area.
Condition is extremely nice. A beautiful display and fine addition to any collection of Victorian resort or lodge memorabilia, especially the "Great Camps" of northern New York.
Size is approximately 4 inches tall at the tip of its spout. There is no maker marking, but the shape is almost certainly from the Syracuse China Company or Buffalo China.
The only issue we can find is a very difficult to see rough spot on the very tip of the spout -- see our last picture. If you do not specifically look for this, you will not notice it.
Our last picture is from an antique postcard, showing the lake frontage, with the imposing main structure behind the boat house on Loon Lake. The Loon Lake House was one of the most prosperous Victorian resort hotels in the northern Adirondack Mountains. Located in Franklin County in the hamlet of Loon Lake, it is approximately 27 miles north of Lake Placid (of Olympics fame). Constructed so it would overlook the waters of Loon Lake, the four-story, 31-room structure attracted many prominent and wealthy people of that time period, including three U. S. Presidents. The beautiful mountain region was a destination for artists, poets, writers, musicians and architects, among others. Unfortunately, the Loon Lake House was destroyed by fire in 1956, but memories and artifacts remain.
