Materials: clays, gilt and vitreous glazes/paints. Dominant colors: olive grey-green / gold and silver. Size: 8" handle to edge of bulbous section of pitcher; 6" tall. This pitcher has a high gloss fired glaze, most of this ware has an unglazed surface. Date made: c. 1881 - 1885. Made in Baltimore, Maryland . Designer: David Frances Haynes at Chesapeake Pottery Co. Mr. Haynes was from New Hampshire and worked in a foundry in Baltimore; he was sent south to establish a factory, and in the process became fascinated with qualities and characteristics of clays for molds. He returned to Baltimore and started his new enterprise, taking on partners after 1887. Mr. Haynes was committed to the "art for art's sake" thesis of the Aesthetic Movement, so he did not try to create exquisitely rare and beautiful pieces for the rich in the manner of Tiffany, but rather wanted useful and beautiful items made affordable by the masses. Condition: without issue. Unmarked. Price: $2,500.00
