Product Information

Lovely antique porcelain pitcher  with ornate incised designs, gold trim on the handle and rim, and applied floral designs repeated inside the spout.  This pitcher was made by the Oliver China Company of Sebring, Ohio, between 1899 and 1908 (see history below).  It has a decidedly Victorian shape and is marked “Verus Porcelain,” a backstamp used between 1899 and 1908.  Originally, it may have been part of a washbasin set.  See dimensions and condition description below.  

APPROX. DIMENSIONS:   8.5″ at highest point x 8″ wide spout to handle

CONDITION: Excellent used antique condition, considering that it’s more than 100 years old.  There’s a small chip inside the lip (see photos) and allover crazing, neither of which detracts from use or appearance.

HISTORY (from online sources): The Oliver China Company was founded by Oliver Sebring in 1898 as the first pottery in Sebring, Ohio.  The company made semi-porcelain earthenwares.  It was sold in 1911 and renamed The E. H. Sebring China Company; it made fine porcelain and toilet seats.

SHIPPING: $9.99 flat rate shipping valid only for street addresses within contiguous United States; we cannot deliver to post office boxes.  For shipping to Alaska, Hawaii and elsewhere, please contact us with your location for a custom shipping quote.

    Wonderful experience, meticulous packaging!

    I purchased two items from this shop. They arrived surprisingly quickly, and it was evident that extreme care was taken to ensure they arrived safely. I greatly appreciate the attention and extra care when packaging up the items. How sad it would be to purchase an antique that has survived multiple generations, only to be destroyed by USPS! Thank you so much for a wonderful shopping experience!
