I have a pitcher/ewer/jug that has been suggested might be Herta Gertz (Gerz?) Pottery. It is white with a yellow heart “flower” and trailing stems with yellow flowers on the ends. I have looked through dozens of pictures of Gertz pitchers, but haven’t seen one like mine. The style vaguely resembles some of the taller Gertz pitchers, but it is more squat and plump than a Gertz pitcher. My initial thought was that it might be Purinton Pottery, but I’ve never seen that pattern on Purinton. There are no markings to help identify. Might you have a suggestion of where I can look for identification for this piece? I can send a photo if necessary. Thank you in advance for any assistance you might be able to give.
