This is a beautiful turquoise blue art glaze pottery pitcher with drip glaze flowing from the top. It is marked on the side U.S.S. North Carolina Battleship Memorial, and Paden City Artware W.Va o the bottom. This company was in operation from 1956 to 1985. This pretty little pottery pitcher measures 2 and 5/8 inches tall and is in very good condition, no chips, no cracks. This is a very good item for the Naval, or military buff. This ship was in service during the 1940s.
