Listen up you little whippersnappers, grandpa has a story to tell you. Back in my day, things were a lot tougher. We had to haul huge blocks of ice up flights of stairs so the milk wouldn’t go bad. We carried our nickels – which was all the money we had at the time, because quarters hadn’t been invented yet – hidden inside apples so the thieves wouldn’t get them. And we attached the handles to our pitchers with screws holding a metal band around a rubber gasket.
You kids don’t believe grandpa, do ya? Well, look at this here pitcher. It was made at a time when things were built to last, not like today with your plastic iwhatevers and your facespaces. And this rubber band is old and cracked but it still holds the pitcher snug, because we built things right back in those days, by gum.
Bottom marked with the round Los Angeles mark, putting it post 1936, but the specific shade of blue doesn’t match the WWII years color, so this is pre 1942. It’s in delph blue and as a pitcher meant for coffee there’s a ceramic lid for the top that was originally present, but is now missing.
