Another Junky Collection

I’m suddenly realizing that we have many collections around the house – and I like it! This collection of yellow pitchers was, once again, collected by my husband before we even met. He must have had lots of time on his hands before I came into his life!

None of the pitchers are Fiestaware, but several of them have “USA” on the bottom. One says “Bauer” and one says “Hiloak.” I don’t know much about those brands, but I love the shapes of them – especially put together in a collection.

  1. Pooh, back when I was so into pottery research I think I knew who made all of these pitchers, but now I can’t recall most of that info. The funny shaped one on the 3rd shelf down is a Westinghouse pitcher, I believe. I think they came WITH new refrigerators in the 50’s maybe? I think there might have been a matching butter dish that either came with or was available separately. My facts could be off a bit. The one on the very bottom (the cool round one) is a popular pitcher from the mid-century and I think it’s a Ball or Bauer??? Shoot, I can’t believe this one I can’t remember. It’s a pretty common collectible and I’ve seen it in lots of cool colors. You’d be able to identify this one pretty easily with a quick eBay search. The pale one right above it looks like it could be a Red Wing, but I’m only saying that because of the rings and the glaze color. Most of this collectible American pottery comes from the Ohio Valley region – Pennsylvania & Ohio areas, I think. That’s where Homer Laughlin is who makes Fiesta. I love this collection of yours. The fact that all the pieces are yellow makes it so charming!
