# 5085. An American Aesthetic Era pottery pitcher. Attributed to D.F. Haynes and Company - Chesapeake Pottery Co. - Baltimore, Maryland (1883-85). . Glazed earthenware, h.6.5". Possibly designed by Frederick Hackney, who was an English potter put in charge of artistic production by Francis Haynes. The factory hired art students, mostly women, from the Maryland Institute School of Design in Baltimore. This example, which may be called Calvert-Ware, came in a variety of colors. Condition: glaze cracklature consistent with this era pottery; loss of gold gilt highlights. The only mark is a series of hand painted gold numbers on the underside: "4346". We don't know how much of this pottery was produced but if this pitcher was use for milk, soapstone and porcelain kitchen sinks are very unforgiving to pottery, porcelain and glass and few examples have probably survived. P.O.R.
Please note the gold gilt loss
