North State Carolina Pottery Chinese Blue Mug Southern Highlanders
A nice hand turned ceramic mug by the North State Pottery of Sanford North Carolina. Double dipped in a Chinese blue glaze it measures 5" tall, 6" wide and 4 1/2" in diameter. It bears an uncommon ink mark "Hand made in America for Southern Highlanders Inc." It seems this mark was used for a retailer during North State's third period mark 1938-1959. It is in very good condition with a small chip on the inner rim and one on the body.
This pottery looks great in a mission, arts and crafts interior or in a country setting.
