Chicago Crucible Company Teco Pitcher Pottery Advertising Match Holder:
This is an unusual item of pottery dating to approximately 1900.It is 5 inches tall and 3 inches diameter at the base. The boyish figure is wearing an apron and a hat and his arms are extending backward to support a small pitcher or crucible! This seems hand crafted or hand constructed and is made of a sewer-like coarse clay. There is a 1/16 inch flake from the rim near the figures right foot. The piece is marked "New Chicago Crucuble Company,"and perhaps was the precursor to TECO pottery. This may be an advertising item for this company, perhaps a match holder. This 10 ounce item will be wrapped well and mailed 1st Class. Thank you for offerding.
