SOUVENIR from the Chicago Word's Fair -- Columbian Exposition -- 1893 Henry Cobb's Fisheries Building Tall Water Pitcher We bought this wonderful pitcher from an sale at our church about 20 years ago, which was at that time a larger, well-healed congregation of older members, many of whom had traveled extensively, and so I feel very certain it's authentic. The inscription on the bottom says "The Fisheries Building World's Fair" and after researching a bit on , I found other photos etc of that building and it's known as Henry Cobb's Fisheries Building from the Columbian Exposition, 1893 Chicago World's Fair. I am a chintz collector, so I'm fairly certain that the picture as well as the floral border are transfers, so that would make this chintz ware as well. The manufacturer is Bridgwood & Son, out of England, and it says "Porcelaine Opache" and the words Trade Mark above a shield for the maker's mark (see photo 10). It's in great vintage condition, with one flaw which I think is a flea bite or skip in the porcelain,. a manufacturing defect. See 11th photo. I've shown lots of close-ups of the details of the building pictures. See the 5th & 6th shots for size of piece.
This is a neat piece of history. We had just moved in to our large, 1916 home when we bought this, thinking it was exactly the kind of souvenir likely to have decorated the house in its early years, but we are down-sizing with an eye to moving to a smaller home in the next few years, so I'm listing it in the hopes it can find a new home.
My home is smoke-free. I ship within a day of receiving payment. Payment due within 3 days of sale end. Shipping to USA Lower 48 only. Insurance will be included of the cost to ship. Thanks for looking.
