Estate sale find: truly stunning antique stoneware pitcher in dusty teal glaze, hand made by the Pittsfield Potters in Pittsfield, VT. While I can't seem to find much info on the Pittsfield Potters I did find out that Pittsfield was the town in Vermont that was hardest hit by hurricane Irene last year. If you know when this pitcher was made please let me know. Even the Pittsfield wikipedia page doesn't mention the Pittsfield Potters--kind of odd, right? There are other Pittsfield items on both Etsy and Ebay, so if you are looking to build a collection this is a great place to start. It's a gorgeous color and the shape is classic Americana. It caught my eye at a fancy estate sale in Greenwich, CT. It stands 11" tall overall and the front to back measurement, including the handle, is 7." It is clearly hand-marked on the bottom. There are no flaws--no chips, cracks, or post-manufacture blemishes. The interior has some residual dirt markings form flower water over the years, but this can be further cleaned. I have shown it with kitchen tools in it as a caddy to demonstrate a new use, but flowers or water are what it was made for.

Convo me with any questions, and thanks for shopping with me.

About me: I am a NY based photo prop stylist for magazines like Real Simple, Instyle, Seventeen, and a few others, plus I’m a well versed shopping powerhouse for props for my photo shoots (some, you will find, oftentimes end up here on Etsy). I really enjoy finding cool stuff, and the result is what I consider a finely curated collection of vintage clothing, fashion and home accessories, and mid century odds and ends---with fair and affordable pricing. I like good stuff, but I can't just hoard it can I?

On the whole I’m an easy to approach seller, and if you love something but can’t afford it and wish I would discount it for you I probably will. That said, I majorly frown on low-ball offers for items that are clearly well-priced, so don’t go there. My pricing is, I find, super cheap in comparison to like items in other shops or on Ebay. I'm just looking to clear out the bins and bins of great stuff I have accumulated over the years. When I shop I do so carefully, and select items of a certain quality and design dignity, and take great care in how each item compliments other items in my shop. I only list things I feel are of a high quality, or if a dress, for instance, is damaged, it's there for sale because I know there is someone out there who even with blemishes or repair needs wants that dress. I've found Etsy to be the perfect place for me to sell that sort of thing. So, the message is: there’s no junk here. I dutifully detail all measurements, blemishes, and details I feel are necessary in the listing, and welcome additional info about a designer or item from shoppers. In my travels I come across amazing vintage clothing in the spirit of Betty Draper and Joan Holloway from Mad Men--great silhouettes and styles that are hand made, dressmaker patterned, or tailor made by home makers in the 50s and 60s. When I come across major designer labels like Chanel or Dior I scoop them up, and again with damaged clothing of a certain quality I know there is someone out there with a mending kit and some moxie that wants them. That said, most of what I like to sell is in clean and ready to go condition.

Shipping: I can ship worldwide (though not everywhere) so convo me for inquiries about countries not listed. As a rule I try to ship Priority Mail when possible to insure that shipments arrive safely and have some sort of trafficking number. I can ship any way you like, though. For international shipments I can send via USPS International First Class depending on the weight of the package, and that is usually a less expensive route. When I am in town I generally ship same day as purchase or within 2 or 3 days. If I am out of town for extended periods of time I put my shop on hold, so if it’s up online I’m probably in town.
