Pitcher Measures 8-3/4" diameter x 11"tall, Pitcher made after 1901. The bottom has the makers mark with a rendering of a buffalo. The pottery was in business in Buffalo, New York from 1901 to present?Sellers' Research: BUFFALO POTTERY COMPANYBackground and history Buffalo Pottery was named after the American city it was created in. The Buffalo Pottery story began when the owner of the Larkin Soap Company decided to commission a limited edition soap dish to hype flagging sales while differentiating the brand from competitors. Over time, Buffalo Pottery products grew more popular than the soap so the same clued-up marketer who came up with the idea for the soap dish premium (Mr. Larkin) diversified his holdings and opened a pottery business. The Buffalo Pottery Company survived the requisite growing pains and never failed to produce the finest pottery in the northeast. Today, Buffalo Pottery pieces command a respectable price at sale and are eagerly sought by loyal collectors.Early Buffalo ware Operating nine kilns from the very beginning, the first Buffalo products were actually semi-vitreous dinnerware sets. In fact, this was the first American-based company to produce a line of Blue Willow ware, and their mastery of blue-printing china rivalled that of English factories. They also developed a line named Gaudy Willow which featured multi-coloured décor. Other early products included game, fowl and fish sets - styles popular the world over in the early 1900s. They made advertising plates and mugs as well. Buffalo also made commemorative and historical lines, which included Roosevelt Bears (akin to the “Teddy” bear) pieces like the one shown here (see the reverse side on page 2 of this feature).Other pitchers made feature fairy tales like Cinderella or historical figures such as George Washington. Even when these pieces are stained like the example here, they can still easily sell in excess of $1,000 each due to their rarity. By 1911, this growing pottery company employed close to 250 people. The premium products on which the company was founded continued to be popular with consumers who gladly redeemed certificates distributed with the purchase of Larkin products to obtain their Buffalo Pottery waresYOU WILL RECEIVE THE EXACT ITEM(s) SHOWN IN THE PHOTOS.
