This is really a rare find, it's one of the largest milk pottery pitchers I have ever seen and is in excellent condition. It comes out of the NC Randolph county area. The family it belonged to settled in Randolph county in the early to middle 1800's and still have family members there. There isn't a makers mark but it's marked 1 1/2 for 1 1/2 gallons. It has a large handle and pinched lip for pouring. Wonderful old crackle finish, no age cracks or chips. It measures - 12 1/4" tall - 8" diameter. It is one of the most fantastic pottery pitchers I have seen in over 30 years of collecting. It is very rare due to its large size.
