This very large C.B. Upjohn tankard stands a tall 18" high by 9" across the handle by 6" in diameter. It is decorated in high relief with an intricate castle scene, with riders on horseback under a forest of trees. The handle is formed by a nude holding the hands of a child. This tankard is glazed in a medium green majolica-type glaze finished in a mirror gloss. C.B. Upjohn joined the Weller Pottery c1895 as a designer. He designed Weller's signature Dickensware line. He left Weller Pottery in 1903 in pursuit of his dream to have his own pottery. He started building his pottery kilns in Zanesville, Ohio soon after leaving Weller Pottery in 1903. An article in the May 1903 issue of 'Glass & Pottery World' magazine detailed the start of C.B Upjohn Pottery in Zanesville. We are not aware of how long Upjohn was in business, but this tankard was produced at his pottery. It is signed on the side in small letters, within the mold, but we really cannot read it. We have seen this tankard in brown majolica glaze with the name Upjon by the handle, so we guarantee it to be authentic C.B. Upjohn Pottery. This tankard is in original factory condition, no apologies. Shipping for this tankard will be based upon your zip code because of its size. If questions please ask.
