Off White Boehm Pitcher 1950-1960 Porcelain Gold Detail 8 Inches Tall No Reserve For Sale

Off White Boehm Pitcher 1950-1960 Porcelain Gold Detail 8 Inches Tall No Reserve

This delicate, porcelain piece is an amazing vintage pitcher. The porcelain is without scratch or mark. The signature, a simple Boehm signature on the bottom, is the early Boehm mark used from 1950-1960 (see excerpt from The Antiques Bible below).

The most important things to note about this pitcher cannot be discerned from the picture. The thinness and consistency and quality of the china...unmatched and beautiful. The gold stripes adorning the pitcher, hand painted.

I BELIEVE this to be from the 1950-1960, but since I am not sure, I am starting the offerding at .99 with . Maybe you can tell more from the pictures than I. I searched the Web for a piece like this and found none. This is a rare piece. Happy offerding and good luck!

Boehm Porcelain Marks

The porcelain studio now known as Boehm porcelain got its start in New Jersey. In 1950, Edward Marshall Boehm, a sculptor, and Helen Boehm, his wife, started the E.M. Boehm porcelain studio. Known today as simply Boehm porcelain, the business specializes in exquisitely designed and sculpted animal figurines with realistic details. They are made of the finest porcelain.

Most of the pieces of this line of minutely detailed nature sculptures have a Boehm porcelain mark on the bottom of the base. If the base is wooden, the Boehm porcelain mark is on the bottom of it. In many instances, the Boehm porcelain mark is the simple raised script signature of Boehm. This mark was used in the 1950s.

In other cases, the Boehm porcelain mark features the Boehm name marked in script along with a horse’s head that is facing to the right. In addition, the word Trenton, and the initials N. J., are painted under the Boehm name. This Boehm porcelain mark was introduced around 1960.
