Description: Item # 5084. Niagara Falls Pitcher United States Pottery Co. Bennington, Vermont. Circa 1853. Parian porcelain. 9.75” tall. As described in “The American Wing” page 241: “ Christopher Weber Fenton, who introduced Parian ware, a hard, marble-like porcelain that is translucent and has a smooth unglazed surface. It had been developed in Europe for making statues that were much less expensive than stone ones. Fenton quickly found that he could make all sorts of objects in Parian, especially those with highly modeled surfaces like that of this pitcher, on which a landscape in relief showing a water-fall, rocks, and trees is supposed to represent Niagara Falls. The piece combines attitude toward nature in general, the American fascination with its own natural wonders in particular, and the pervasive Victorian interest in oddities.” Condition: as notated in the photos: a rim edge flake; a base hairline and not shown in the photos where the handle at the top joins the body of the pitcher a slight ‘crack’. The cracks mentioned are believed to be as was issued from the factory. Pictured on page 240 of “The American Wing” plate 365. This pitcher was probably to be used for iced water and is glazed on the inside.
