Roosevelt Bears Buffalo Pottery Pitcher. The white pitcher is decorated with brown transfer designs of the "Roosevelt Bears", based on a 1906 cartoon of bears traveling to see President Theodore Roosevelt, the center panels of which are hand colored. Each cartoon has a caption beneath it. The bears are pictured at home, the circus, in school & driving an early automobile. 7 3/4" from handle to spout and 8" tall. The bottom is marked "Buffalo Pottery 1907, Underglaze Warranted, Copyright Edward Stern & Co.". There is also a hand numbered "1436" on the bottom. This pitcher is in very very good condition. It does have tiny overall crazing and the top 2 inch band is stained a light brown which for whatever reason most of them seem to have. This colorful large pitcher is very sought after & hard to find.Buyer pays s/i & Ca. residents add tax.We ship promptly, normally next day & the least expensive, fastest way. Most of the time it's not Priority Mail as I find it more expensive for most items. I save boxes because with Priority for the most part you're paying for the box. A lot of items will ship just as fast at a lower rate 1st class. If I'm quoting Parcel Post & you want Priority, don't pay til you get a new quote from me.
