Pottery Pitcher

Honey & Beige colored pottery pitcher with wood handle, lid, spout and the initials GT or Gr at the bottom?

The initials are impressed into the pottery on the front towards the base, either upper case GT in a square or Gr (maybe T broke) I love this pitcher but would like some history on it. No chips great condition, purchased thrift store Boulder Colorado 2010

Well if this is what I think it is, then you have quite a unique and valuable item on your hand. You are probably seeing the initials GR which stands from the famous German pottery maker Gottschalk-Richter. They were very well known for their pitchers, which they chose to only produce in the honey-beige tones as well as placing their initials in a square imprint. They were very popular in the early 1900's until World War II. During the war, their German factory was ransacked by US forces and almost all inventory was destroyed as it was well know at the time Gottschalk-Richter was channeling large sums of money into Hitler's Nazi regime. Many private owners of the pottery also smashed it in protest of the Nazi army. These acts eventually lead to pieces such as the pitcher you now hold to become very, very rare. If the piece is considered in "great" condition as you say, you are looking at 50k low end and 70k high end USD at auction. Even a chipped Gottschalk-Richter could fetch upwards of 35k at auction these days. Best of luck with your piece of history!
