Buckeye Pottery Stag Head logo mystery

Do you know what years the Buckeye Pottery Company used this logo? If so, please email me. We’ve tried to solve the BP logo mystery for several years without success and have quite a discussion going on here. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a bunch!

Rare old Buckeye Pottery Company scalloped top pitcher

Attention! This is NOT a piece of yellow spongeware with an italicized “Buckeye” on its bottom. Those pieces were produced by the Morton Pottery Company (Morton, IL) during the 1920's and often used as give-aways for syrup, etc. Our 7" tall off-white stoneware pitcher is a rare piece of authentic Buckeye Pottery produced by The Buckeye Pottery Company of Macomb, IL some time between 1882 and 1939, at which time the Buckeye Pottery buildings were purchased by the Haeger Company for the manufacture of floral artware. Joseph Pech, a native of Bohemia born in 1827, emigrated to America in 1852, living first in Wisconsin, then in Ohio, and ultimately in Macomb, IL, where he founded Joseph Pech & Sons in 1882, which later became known as The Buckeye Pottery Company. An old historical record from Macomb (ca. 1885) states: “Among the other industrial institutions of Macomb is the Buckeye, which is located on Carroll street, near the railroad track. This was established by the present proprietors, Joseph Pech & Sons, in 1882, they erecting the necessary buildings at that time. They have a capital of $20,000 invested here, and afford employment to some 20 hands. Most of their ware, which is of a superior quality, is made from clay found within the limits of the county and sent to Nebraska, Iowa, and other western states.” (Our pitcher surfaced in Kansas.) Sorry for the history lesson; I just love this stuff! Anyhow, about this pitcher. As stated, it stands 7" tall, with a 4-1/2" diameter scalloped mouth, 5" diameter base, and is 7" in diameter at its widest point (at the bottom of the applied handle), where it has a slightly raised band around its circumference. It is glazed inside and out in a speckly off-white color. The bottom is also glazed, except for the base ring, and impressed with exceedingly faint words in a circular pattern around the edge that say “The Buckeye Pottery Company Macomb Ill”. The interior is thoroughly crazed, and there is one old chip at the interior spout and another double chip on one of the exterior scallops. This old pitcher was a prized possession of Ol’ Swaphos’ grandma, and he remembers her making Kool-Ade in it for him when he was a very young whippersnapper in the late 1940's.

USA brown 8" shoulder bowl

This is a vintage brown shoulder bowl stamped “USA 8 in” on its bottom. It is unglazed on its 8" diameter rim and underneath its 1-1/4" double ribbed shoulder, which then tapers downward via four more ribs to a 4" diameter base. It may originally have been the second largest of a set of mixing bowls. It is in perfect condition, with no chips, cracks, or crazing, but plenty of glaze bubbles and pops on the interior surface and a few more on the exterior surface, not at all uncommon with this type of old stoneware.

Brown 7-7/8" shoulder bowl

This old brown unmarked shoulder bowl is almost exactly like the USA bowl listed immediately above. It is unglazed on its 7-7/8" diameter rim and underneath its 1-1/4" shoulder, which then tapers downward to a 4" diameter base. The base ring has four notches that look for all the world like cigarette rests! (Sorry, I’m a smoker and I tend to see cigarette rests where other people see only notches!) This bowl is in very good used condition, with no cracks or crazing, but a couple of chips on its shoulder and a very old long scratch on its interior bottom.. And of course it has its normal complement of bumps, glaze pops, and glaze flaws associated with these old stoneware pieces. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Western Stoneware Shoulder Bowl

This huge old Western Stoneware shoulder bowl is obviously waaaaay vintage, and may well be a true antique. It stands 4-1/2" high with diameters of 10-3/4" at its unglazed rim and 5-1/4" at its base ring, inside of which it says “Western Stoneware Co”. Western Stoneware Co. was established in 1906 by combining seven existing potteries in and around Monmouth, IL: Weir Pottery, Monmouth Pottery, Macomb Stoneware Company, Macomb Pottery Company, D Culbertson Stoneware Company, Clinton Stoneware Company, and Fort Dodge Stoneware Company. These shoulder bowls were often called “milk bowls” because they would be filled with raw milk, straight from the cow. When the cream rose to the top, everyone in the household, especially the children, had a wonderful treat to stealthily skim off before Mama commandeered the cream for cooking purposes! This heavy off-white bowl with attractive dark gray splotches and drips has a 1-1/2" high shoulder. It’s in superb condition, with the normal complement of bumps, knife slips, rough spots, and glaze pops characteristic of these old stoneware bowls, but no cracks or crazing. Quite an impressive piece to add to your stoneware collection! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

USA deep blue 5" shoulder bowl

This vintage little shoulder bowl has a color so deep blue as to be nearly purple. It is unglazed on its rim, underneath its 1" shoulder, and on its base rim. It is stamped “USA 5 in” on the bottom, and does, in fact, have a 5" diameter top and a 2-1/2” diameter base. It stands 2-3/4” high. It may originally have been the smallest of a set of mixing bowls, and the 5" size is always the most difficult to find. The two blue sections of the exterior are ribbed. The bowl is in near perfect condition, with no cracks or crazing, but there are quite a few glaze pops. What looks like a small chip in the photos at the bottom of the exterior shoulder may actually be a very shallow one, but I’m tempted to say it’s a glaze skip. Right below the interior rim, there is a narrow 3/4” long indentation that might also be a chip, but it’s so perfect that it looks more like a manufacturer’s flaw.You be the judge on both blemishes! If you’re into the country look, I’d highly recommend this bowl! (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Large heavy stoneware “dish”

I wouldn’t actually call this vintage old piece a “dish”, but I don’t know what else to call it. Whatever its proper name, it’s certainly large, heavy, and some kind of stoneware. It stands 2-1/4" high and is 10-1/2" in diameter at the top and 6-1/2" in diameter at the base. Its exterior and 2" sloping rim are a rough-textured heavily speckled brown color. Its interior, in a smoother-textured heavily speckled beige color with brown accents, is curved like a shallow bowl and has indented concentric circles at the bottom. The inner rim slightly overhangs the “bowl” portion. The unglazed base has a think piece of cork affixed to it, the edges of which have become quite irregular over who knows how many years of usage. Above the base is a 7/8" bevel containing an incised square enclosing a raised “F”. This attractive, substantial piece definitely looks and feels rustic, but is in perfect condition, with no chips, cracks, or crazing. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Brown & white individual bean pot w/ lid #1

This vintage 2-handled crockery bean pot is 5-1/4" tall when lidded, and its diameters are 3-1/2" mouth, 5" widest point, and 4" base. It has a shiny glaze both inside and out. Its top half is dark brown, as are its handles, interior, and lid. Its bottom half is shiny white. Its unmarked bottom is also glazed white, except for the unglazed base rim that carries four sets of triple incisions often seen on McCoy and RRP pieces. The pot is in perfect condition, but the lid has several dings, as shown in the photos. This bean pot does not match the one listed below, although they coordinate well. Tell a friend.

Brown & white individual bean pot w/ lid #2

This vintage 2-handled crockery bean pot is 5” tall when lidded, and its diameters are 3-1/2" mouth, 5" widest point, and 4" base. It has a shiny glaze both inside and out. Its top half is brown, as are its handles and interior. Its lid is shiny brown with an unglazed band. Its bottom half is shiny white. Its unmarked bottom is also glazed white, except for the wide unglazed base rim that carries four sets of triple incisions often seen on McCoy and RRP pieces. This bean pot is undoubtedly older than the one listed above, and has several old chips at the mouth to prove it. On the other hand, they’re so smooth to the touch that I suppose they could be glaze skips. The lid, however, has two definite chips on its rim and there’s a 1" piece that looks like it broke off at one time and was glued back together. Our price reflects this damage.

Pair of dark brown jam pots

I’ll bet these cute little guys were originally jam pots. I’ve seen others of this exact size and shape advertised as Hall Casual Living Jam Pots, but those have a white glazed interior, rim, and stopper piece. Ours are glazed inside and out in a dark brown color and have long since lost their lids. They are identical in size and shape, being 3" tall, with diameters of 2-1/2" mouth, 3-1/4" widest point, and 2-3/4" base. Both have an unglazed base, but different marks. One has a black circular stamp with “39" in the middle. The other has a fuzzy blue mark about the size of a small finger print, and if you look really closely under a magnifying glass, there appears to be at least one bird, maybe two, and possibly some foliage. Or maybe that’s just an optical illusion from staring at that “fingerprint” too long! Both pots are in perfect condition: no chips, cracks, or crazing. (Click on picture for more images.)
