This antique earthenware creamer pitcher is an authentic stoneware piece by Cobridge Pottery, circa 1840 - 1860. It is quite a rare and unusual piece from the Cone pattern collection, as indicated on the bottom stamp. It would make a lovely pastel blue piece for your vintage home collection - perhaps repurposed as a lovely flower vase.
This pitcher is in good antique condition with no chips or cracks. There are a few very small pits here and there, and the pitcher has an overall worn appearance, with some discoloration probably caused by newspaper rubbing. There is some discoloration on the inside of the pitcher as well.
When I acquired this item at an estate sale, it was buried in a box of 19th century items which had been carefully wrapped in tight newspaper so old and worn, it was almost pasted to the pieces. I have gently cleaned this piece up prior to listing, but there remains some small bits of this newspaper debris in the areas of deep relief. I did not scrub, so as not to disturb the paint or scratch the surface of the piece, but I'm sure more of the tiny spots could be removed upon arrival, if desired.
The full maker's stamp on the bottom includes the W. B. Cobridge name, "Cone" pattern name, and the company's seal (see fourth photo). The Cone pattern is a very fitting name for the style, as it features a raised texture all around, resembling a pine cone.
This creamer pitcher measures 4.25" tall. The bottom base measures 2" in diameter. The total width, including spout and handle, spans approx. 4.5".
