This is a rare original "Glacier Trail Creamery Co. Havre, Mont." advertising Watt Pottery stoneware #6 mixing bowl, Starflower - 5 petal design. The Watt Pottery started in 1922 was operated by the Watt family of Perry County Ohio. The pottery was started on the site of the old Burley Pottery factory in Crooksville Ohio. Watt Pottery, 1922 to 1965, began hand decorating its wares in 1949. The patterns are simple in nature, with as few brush strokes as possible to allow low production costs. The pieces were decorated by teams of three decorators. The bright colors against the deep cream clay give Watt Pottery its unique country appeal. The first hand decorated patterns are called the "Classic Patterns" and were produced from 1949 until about 1953. This piece is in good condition with minimal crazing or chips (slight imperfection in glaze when fired, not from wear). Measurement is 6.25" diameter, 3"H
