Up for auction is a really great Cole Pottery pitcher and mug set, in a wonderful multi-color green mottled glaze. We bought these pieces at the pottery from Celia Cole in early 1996. I don't think they were sold as a set, I seem to remember that we bought the individual pieces and just assembled them as a set. Cole Pottery is in Sanford, North Carolina.
The pitcher is just under 11" tall and is absolutely beautiful. It has a well formed spout and an ice keeper strap. It is signed on the bottom "Kenneth George 10-31-95 Sanford, NC Its hard to believe November is already ". It also has the circular Cole Pottery stamp. It could be used for iced tea, coffee, milk, lemonade, etc. The pitcher has a nice fitting lid.
The four mugs, cups, tumblers, whatever you want to call them, are "pinched" style, w the sides are pinched in to form a handy place for your hand to hold them comfortably. The four mugs were made by Celia Cole and are signed by her on the bottom. One is dated 12-5-95, the other three are dated 1-29-96. Each one has the circular stamp and a saying on the bottom. The sayings include - "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder", "Time out for tea", "Tea time come and get it", and "Hello World I Love You". The mugs are approx. 4.25" tall.
All of the pieces are in perfect condition, as they came from the pottery. The pitcher and two of the mugs have never been used. The other two mugs have been used a couple of times, but are perfect. This is a really great set that can enjoyed either using it or displaying it.
