This lovely two-handled pot measures 6" tall and about the same at the widest part across the handles. The form is unusual as is the ring of embossed leaves around the top portion.
The double glaze is outstanding; pink or cranberry drip covered with a mottled green matte finish over glaze.
No chips, cracks or other damage but a slight divot on the bottom underside which occurred in the manufacture. The interior is clean with no lime deposits or other signs of usage.
Burley Winter was one of the hundreds of Ohio potteries located in the Zanesville to Crooksville "clay corridor". Founded at Crooksville in the late 1800's and in business till the 1930's when they fell victim to the Depression like so many of their competitors. They are perhaps lesser known than others from the area probably due to the fact that the majority of the pots were unmarked. Quality control was not particularly strict as firing and glazing flaws are commonly found. These are easily overlooked when the lovely colors and amazing glazing techniques are considered.
