Set of 3 Maker’s Mark limited edition collector plates

It doesn’t get any better than this! Here’s a complete set of three beautiful limited edition Maker’s Mark collector plates made by Louisville Stoneware. What a great partnership between two of Louisville’s most prestigious companies! These large (11-1/8" diameter) heavy (42.4 oz each!!) handpainted stoneware plates depict three of the historic buildings located at the Maker’s Mark “village” in Loretto, KY: The Distillery, The Toll House, and The Quart House. The Distillery plate, No. 522 in a limited edition of 1000, features a highly detailed drawing of the Distillery, a National Historic Landmark and the oldest operating distillery in America. The Toll House plate, No. 456 in a limited edition of 1000, features an equally highly detailed drawing of the restored 19th century Toll House that dates back to the 1880s when tolls were levied for using the country roads that wind through the distillery property. The Quart House plate, No. 332 in a limited edition of 1000, features an equally highly detailed drawing of this oldest standing retail package store in the country. All 3 plates say “Maker’s Mark” on the bottom rim and carry the SIV logo on both the left and right rim. The back of each plate gives information about the building depicted on the front, shows the plate’s number, and also says “Handmade by Louisville Stoneware.” Plate backs also have hanging holes should you desire to display them on a wall. Whether you’re a Maker’s Mark collector, a Louisville Stoneware collector, or a plate collector, you’re sure to appreciate these beautiful limited edition plates. All three are in perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, crazing, or discoloration. (Click on pictures for more images.) Tell a friend.

4-piece Horses beverage dispenser

If horses are your thing, you’ll love this gorgeous Louisville Stoneware 4-piece beverage dispenser that features a whole herd of horses (eight of them) prancing and cavoarting around the 3-quart beverage container. The high-relief horses are done in shades of brown, beige, chestnut, and chocolate, all on an ivory background. Complimentary color bands around the container top, base bottom, and lid rim, with a beige lid knob. The generous cookie jar shaped container is 7-1/2" tall with diameters of 5-7/8" at the mouth, approximately 7-1/4" at its widest point, and 5-3/8"at its notched 4-footed base that fits securely around the top ring of the 3-1/8" tall x 6-7/8" diameter base piece. Domed 4-7/8" diameter lid has large raised knob. Together, the three pieces stand 11-1/2" tall. Container bottom carries the distinctive Louisville Stoneware artist palette logo. Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, or cracks. What looks like a crack or chip on the top rim of the container is actually a glaze slip that evidently occurred during manufacture because it’s under the glaze and is completely smooth to the touch. Comes with a brand new spigot assembly. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Double horseshoe ice bucket

The front of this waaay cool – no pun intended – Louisville Stoneware ice bucket features a pair of entwined upturned horseshoes handpainted in shades of mottled gray. Top and base are rimmed in gray bands and strings of embossed beads. Standing an impressive 6-3/4" tall, its interior is 6" deep, its rim is slightly over 6-1/2" in diameter and its pedestal foot flares out to the 5-3/8" diameter base. Concave bottom carries the famous Louisville Stoneware artist palette logo and is dated 2006, making it one of the last pieces to sport this distinctive logo since both the company ownership and logo changed one year later. The bottom also says this piece is oven, microwave, freezer, and dishwasher safe, so the Louisville Stoneware folks evidently envisioned it as a multi-purpose serving piece. Actually, it would make an outstanding vase, too!  Perfect condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, or scratches. Be sure to see our coordinating pair of Embossed Running Horse julep cups.

The Louisville Stoneware Story

Tracing its roots back to 1815, Louisville Stoneware is one of the oldest continuously operating potteries in Kentucky, still in business today making its famous handmade, handpainted pottery in much the same way as has been done for nearly 200 years. In 1878, the pottery works was purchased by John Bauer and named the J.B. Pottery of Louisville, Kentucky. Sylvester O. Snyder bought the company in 1905, incorporating it a year later under the name Louisville Pottery Company. Its most famous owner, John B. Taylor, operated the company from 1938 to 1970, producing the highly collectible Cherokee, Daniel Boone, and Great Smoky Mountains lines of pottery. John and Vivian Robertson bought the company in 1970 and changed its name to Louisville Stoneware in 1971. Their beautiful pottery items are often stamped on the bottom with their distinctive “artist’s palette” logo composed of two hands, one at the top and one at the bottom, with the top hand holding an artist’s brush. Not surprisingly for a pottery works located in Louisville, many Louisville Stoneware patterns depict horses, with a strong emphasis on Kentucky Derby motifs. Purchased in 1977 by Christina Lee Brown, the company expanded through corporate partnerships and produced many corporate gift items, including a whole line of products for Kentucky Fried Chicken. On her retirement in 2007, the company was sold to Two Stone, Inc., a local investor group, who also retired the famous artist’s palette logo. Known throughout America for its beauty and high quality, Louisville Stoneware pieces are found in the White House and the Smithsonian Institution.
