Vintage 40s Pottery Ball Jug Pitcher Continental Kilns Green Arbor Pattern


Brand Etsy

This is a wonderful ball jug or pitcher made by Continental Kilns of Chester, West Virginia. Continental Kilns was established in 1940 and was in business until 1957. They were located in the same Ohio River area as Hall and Homer Laughlin. This pitcher is decorated in the Green Arbor pattern and features raised pink flowers with green leaves and brown stems, similar in a way to Franciscans Desert Rose pattern. The piece is made in a classic ball jug form with ice lip. It is in very good condition with the exception of some moisture leeching at the bottom of the piece, not on the interior, and really not noticeable under normal display, very minor. It has some decoration low glaze spots, but these are original to the making of the piece. It measures 8 1/2 from the back of the handle to the tip of the spout and has a height of 6 3/4 at the spout. It weighs 1.1 kilos (2.4 lbs). Pretty display piece for a retro kitchen decor!
