Red Collodian Pitcher
2 lbs., 0.4 oz.
7" diameter x 10.25"h
Kitchen, Dining Room
This antique primitive Collodian pitcher represents early plastic in development around 1905, before the development of Bakelite. Collodian is actually spun cellulose formed to create the pitcher. The handle is formed by a bent metal strap wired to the vessel and held in place by two routed grooves.
This primitive vessel is a great companion piece for someone who has a stoneware collection. The pitcher has a wonderfully weathered texture and a barn red color. There are multiple chips at the lip (please see product photos).
