More about this item
Uhl Pottery Barrel Pitcher with Ice Lip, Green Large stoneware lemonade, water, or iced-tea pitcher. Size: about 8 inches tall, 6 in. diameter, excluding the handle. Weight: about 3 pounds. This pitcher is almost as large as a gallon water jug, but is a 3-quart pitcher. The bottom is completely unglazed and unmarked. The light green glaze is crazed inside and out, an indication of its age. Old chip on inside of lip about 1 inch long. I have been collecting American dinnerware for many years, and this old pitcher has been one of my favorites. I thought it may have been partly hand-finished, since the ice lip is wavy and irregular. Also, the hole in the spout is not smooth and perfect. It is the same mold as Uhl barrel pitchers, but perhaps one of the earlier ones. Uhl Pottery began making dinnerware after 1908, and ceased production in 1944. The Huntingburg (Indiana) Public Library website has an interesting account of the history of Uhl Pottery, written in 1937. August and Louis Uhl, brothers from Germany, began the pottery in 1849. It was located at first in Evansville, Indiana, and after 1908 in Huntingburg, Indiana. From the Uhl Collector’s Society, only about 30 per cent of Uhl pottery was marked.
