Description

Measures: 8" tall X 7 1/4" wide (handle to tip of spout)

This Bennington Pottery pitcher is glazed in a green and black agate finish. It is in excellent condition with no chips - cracks or crazing. Bennington pottery pieces are world renowned and I have actually donated several pieces to a few museums that had been designed - completed and signed by David Gil and Yusuke Aida.

These are fine investments and are considered to be some of the most important American designed - produced - and glazed pieces of utilitarian pottery. Period.

"Each year thousands of people travel from all over the country to visit Potters Yard for a shopping experience unlike any other in New England. Many first-time shoppers become life-long collectors of Bennington pottery, stopping in each year to add a few new pieces of stoneware pottery to their bakeware, dinnerware, and serving collections. Even though the emerging 19th Century middle class was seeking both decorative and practical pottery items for their homes, the pottery business in Bennington began to decline significantly, and between 1911 and 1948 had nearly died out.
It was at this time that a potter by the name of David Gil began making ceramics as part of an artists' cooperative. Gil eventually opened Bennington Potters in a small unheated barn in downtown Bennington. In 1964 Bennington Potters expanded into a former home and business supply building located on County Street, where it is still operating today.
This rustic 1900s building was once the Home Depot of Bennington, located just 4 blocks from the old Bennington Freight Yard. This location enabled prior owner Henry W. Meyers to off-load coal, firewood, ice, lumber and farm equipment for home and business delivery.
Over the years, under the leadership of Gil, this former supply building transformed itself into an active craft pottery that today is one of southern Vermont's most popular destinations. Bennington Potters is also referred to as Potters' Yard".
