    About a quart or 1-1/2. Unmarked, glazed bottom.

    Hi Terry,
    You know we like to see bottoms. A lot of times the way it is finished on the bottom can give us better items.

    Pretty! I have a few similar jug/pitcher pieces here at home. One was my husband's grandmother's piece. I think the pattern is referred to as an Acanthus Leaf. Looks like Stoneware, and I think generally called Salt Glaze. The cobalt pieces are popular with the Country crowd, but do best when they have some kind of pictorial (love birds, people, scene, etc.).

    It is absolutely not salt glaze. Without seeing the base, can't really tell whether it's stoneware, but I doubt it.

    The base glaze is Bristol glaze with the cobalt airsprayed on. It is indeed stoneware.
    As Terry sez in the title this is typically called "Blue and White Stoneware" over here. Made for the ol' farmer's kitchen circa 1900-1930(?)or so. Produced by MANY MANY potteries over the years such as Brush, Redwing, Monmouth, etc. ad infinitum.

    I'm sure I've seen the pattern before, but maybe on a pot or vase. The vessel form and glaze have the feel of Old Sleepy Eye.

    Terry - I'm with you. I saw this pattern on a pot several years ago.

    It does have an acanthus leaf design but the pattern name was the question as well as the maker. I had a salt box but I do not think my record book goes back that far. The cobalt overspray is the key. I am trying to remember the years it really became popular, not by the public but by the manufactuers.

    A google image search of 'acanthus stoneware' brought up that ebay listing and this post pretty quick

    Isn't it rather odd that that ebay page from 2013 is still viewable?

    Wow, 2013? Veeeery interesting. Maybe ebay is doing some new weird thing with Google to drive in traffic from searches?
