This is a RARE set of Buckeye Pottery. The mugs not as much as the pitcher. Buckeye Pottery was started after the son of Joseph Petch came to America in 1880 and went to work for a pottery company. His father had learned the craft in Austria and the son found the perfect place to have a pottery business in Illinois. He convinced his father to come to America and in 1882 they opened Buckeye Pottery in Macomb Ill. They were known for making crocks. They closed in 1938 but it is now a Buckeye Pottery museum.
This pitcher resembles a crock, has a brown glaze on the outside and white on the inside. It is 7.25" tall and 5 1/16" in diameter. It has a large spout and handle. The bottom has 4 small chips which do not affect the viability of the pitcher at all. It is stoneware and very strong. There are no cracks or crazing.
There are 6 mugs. 2 are in perfect shape, 2 have some crazing on the bottom inside, and 2 have cracks but still hold water. These are from at least the 20s, possibly older. I was told the owners grandmother brewed beer and used them as a beer pitcher and mugs.
