~ any info on this? ~


I found this little pitcher at the thrift store a while back.  It's 5" tall, the bottom is 4 3/4" across, and the top is 4" across.  The only information on the bottom is 'USA'.  I'm thinking the star motif looks like something from the 1950's.  Has anyone ever seen this before?

eta: thank you to Laura and Helen for informing me that this is a piece of Salem North Star dinnerware.  :)

  1. Franciscan pottery had similar design patterns (1950's); it could be that or it could be a copycat for Franciscan pottery maybe? It's a neat vintage piece Debi, great find. :-)

  3. I love that atomic theme of the 50s! That looks like a pattern called North Star by Salem. It should be stamped on the bottom but maybe over time it rubbed off. Awesome find, it is completely adorable!!!

  4. May be is Franciscan Pottery, but maybe it's a combination of chi-rho symbol crismon

  6. Debi,

    I apologize if this eventually shows up several times but my posts just seem to evaporate.

    It is Salem Hopscotch Turquoise.
