Rare Bell Pottery porcelain pitcher, hand painted with ripe red cherries on pale blue, green, blush, and yellow grounds.

O., a mark used by Bell Pottery of Findlay, Ohio from 1899 until 1904. Bell Pottery constructed Findlay Electric Porcelain Co in 1899 and also produced a very limited quantity of fine porcelain, but for only five years, from 1899 to 1904, when they closed due to fires and bankruptcy. Due to the short 5 year production period, Bell Pottery Co. porcelain is considered rare and highly sought after. It was placed into receivership and eventually became one of the largest manufacturers of specialty electrical porcelains like insulators. This company was one of those merging to form General Porcelain Company in 1927.
