Face Pitcher

circa 1935

Harvey F. Reinhardt (American, 1912 - 1960)

Harvey Reinhardt and his brother Enoch opened their pottery about 1932 near Vale. They made utilitarian wares as well as objects for the tourist trade. Catering to the tourist trade, Harvey Reinhardt and Ernest Auburn Hilton were among the earliest Catawba Valley potters to make face jugs. As seen on this example, Reinhardt typically used a lighter clay for the eyes and white porcelain chips for the teeth.
