Salt Glazed Pottery Jug Jupiter Hills Golf WC Ford 1997
This large salt glazed blue and white pottery pitcher was made by potter Phil Schaltenbrand of the Westerwald Pottery in Scenery Hill, Pennsylvania, established in 1975. It is signed on the base. Impressed cobalt blue lettering on both sides reads: William Clay Ford Classic and Jupiter Hills 1997. Since WC Ford (Henry Ford's grandson) was one of the 4 founders of the Jupiter Hills Golf Club in Florida, along with Bob Hope, George Fazio (designer) and William Elliot, I presume this jug has something to do with the great game of golf. The jug itself stands 10.5" high, 12.25" to the top of the handle. It is hand thrown on the potter's wheel, brush decorated, banded with cobalt, and fired to stoneware temperatures of 2300 degrees Farenheit. No lead is used in the glaze and so it is safe for food. It is also microwave and dishwasher safe. A small folder with this and other information is included with the pot. It is in excellent, seemingly unused, condition.
