BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE ROCKINGHAM BENNINGTON SPATTER GLAZE SPITTOON YELLOW WARE:
This listing is for a pottery spittoon with the spatter brown & yellow Rockingham glaze often used by Bennington Pottery in Vermont in the 19th century. It has a diameter of 8 inches and a height of 4 1/2 inches.There is a chip re-glued into the top shoulder that is barely noticeable, even with a bit of material missing, and there is a chip on the bottom rim that is not visible from above. Otherwise the piece is in excellent condition, looking unused, except for light wear to the base rim. I have other pieces with Rockingham glaze listed in my store. All of my items were found in estate sales and cleanouts on Cape Cod. None of the items have been touched by the public, just stored in totes. All items have been stored for weeks or thoroughly washed. I am in a low risk area and I am observing all precautions for virus protection.
I use USPS exclusively for shipping, and in 22 years of ing, I have had little or no complaints with their service. I will ship light items under a pound including books by First Class, which is faster than Media, and gets a discount on Priority Mail which makes the cost of Priority about equal to Standard Mail. Priority is faster, insured for free up to $50 and they have free boxes for most sizes, and I think that is the best way to go. I pack things very well with plenty of bubble wrap and peanuts. I use recycled boxes when I can, not so much during the pandemic, and I only use recycled peanuts, preferably the one that look like Chee-tos, which are made of corn syrup and are biodegradable. I urge everyone to use recycled packing and paper products whenever they can.
