Old Sleepy Eye Cobalt Blue & White 9 inch #5 Pitcher.
Old Sleepy Eye was a Sioux Indian Chief born in Minnesota in 1780. A town and a flour mill were named after him.
In 1906 - Western Stoneware Co. of Monmouth Illinois started producing Cobalt & White items with the bust of the Indian Chief.
These pitchers - creamers - sugars - salt boxes - vases - and other items were used as everyday utilitarian wares. This very collectible #5 pitcher measures approx 9 inches tall to top of spout.
It does have a crow's foot and some crazing and staining from age that could be bleached out. There is one lower rim chip which is under glaze - so was done during manufacturing. There is one tiny chip on the underside. See photos. It is in very good condition for it's age.
Would be a very nice addition to an Old Sleepy Eye or Blue & White Stoneware Collection.
