John Andrew Bauer moved his successful pottery firm from Kentucky to Los Angeles, California in 1910.
His company produced basic flowerpots and garden vases. By the 1930s, however, the J.A. Bauer Company
was producing dinnerwares, experimenting with solid color glazes.
This milk pitcher is from the Gloss Pastel Kitchenware line from the 1940s. It is 5 inches tall. There are no cracks or chips. The name “Bauer” is embedded in the glaze on the bottom.
