Hello! I registered here hoping that someone may be able to confirm my suspicions regarding aspects attributed to certain pitchers and/or cruets. It's been impossible to get my hands on a hobbs book, and have been trying to forever, so my literature & resources are limited. I am trying to find out who made old pitchers & cruets with reeded hadles and polished pontils. I am personally between hobbs and webb, possibly mt. Washington, and have seen phoenix have similar characteristics, i believe, although i'm not positive. Maybe beaumont??? So confused!!! I am asking in general, and also in particular about a blueina/bluina cruet i have in a polka dot/coin spot i.e. Pattern. It has a reeded handle and polished pontil. I collect pitchers, among basically everything else (hopeless fanatic!!!) and have seen old pitchers that do have the reeded handles & polished pontils which i generally try to steer away from, as many newer ones have reeded handles. I do know that some of these are old, and definitely not repro's, but the literature & resources i have are not helpful in determining the maker, and although my parents have collected for decades, and i've learned volumes from them, i'm a newer prodigy, and have done well with most patterns, but am at a total loss here! I'm just not sure what company had both reeded handles & polished pontils. I'm hoping someone can help me!!! Any opinions or information is greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!!!
