I have found pieces of this pitcher throughout this dump but this is the 1st unbroken one that I have found. I found the body of the pitcher in tact without any chips or cracks which is remarkable for this dump. It was missing the spout and I found it in the hole right next to the body, I epoxied it back on and it was a perfect fit. You can't even tell that it was missing originally. The top had a few chips so I replaced it with a similar top that I had dug and kept from before. What you see is what I ended up with. I like it.

That's remarkable; nice fix. This digger I used to know in San Jose had one of those he'd found in a privy. Rebecca at the Well...

It's a tea pot not a pitcher. The design of the Rebecca at the well teapot was first created by E.J. Coxon while he worked as a mold designer at Edwin Bennetts Yellowware pottery in Baltimore during the 1850s.
