Up for auction is a lovely vintage BLUE RIDGE pottery hand painted pitcher marked "Blue Ridge China Hand Painted Underglaze Southern Potteries Inc., Made in U.S.A. Virginia Jug #1". Perhaps in photo #3 you can see the embossed design around the rim. The pitcher is approx. 6.25" at its tallest and and 5" at its widest diameter. It's in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or breaks. From the mark I believe this piece dates to the late 1930s to early 1940s. It's a fantastic piece.
