New Black Face Ceramic PitcherBy Mark Chervenka
New Black Face Ceramic Pitcher
This 8″ high ceramic pitcher is on the market. It features a stylized face of a black child. The representation is similar to illustrations of characters in the books Little Brown Koko and Topsy Turvy.
The background is off-white cream color with the face and small geometric swirls in solid black. American made; new retail $76.
Many of the more popular and expensive original pieces of black memorabilia are kitchen items which date from only the 1950s. Mass produced ceramic products have changed very little since then. This new pitcher will be difficult to detect based on construction alone. No old examples like this piece are known.
