This Shawnee Gold Trim Cloverbud Smiley Pig Pitcher is Extremely Rare. This Shawnee Kitchenware line is also known as the Clover Blossom line. This Shawnee Kitchenware Line includes the Smiley and Winnie Cookie Jars, Smiley and Winnie Large and Small Shakes, Grease/Sugar Bowl, Smiley Creamer and Pitcher and Teapot. When I purchased him several years ago there was only 6 or 7 of these Pitchers known to exist. Smiley's red neckerchief has lots of gold lines on it and a beautiful clover blossom on his side which is also outlined in beautiful gold. Smiley also has gold on his handle and the most adorable rosy cheeks and snout.
This Smiley Gold Trim Cloverbud Pitcher is in excellent condition with no chips, crazing or hairlines. The gold on his handle is in great condition with only a slight amount of gold wear on the bottom end of the handle. Smiley is marked "Patented Smiley USA" on the bottom and stands approx. 7 1/2" tall.
I've provided several pictures so that you can get a good look at this wonderful and Extremely Rare Shawnee Gold Trim Cloverbud Smiley Pitcher. I'm going to miss him terribly but it's time to pass him on to another collector who will cherish him for many more years to come. This delightful Cloverbud Smiley Pig Pitcher will make a wonderful and rare addition to your Shawnee Pottery Collection.
