Summary

This butter churn was made of a durable, leak-proof pottery called stoneware, shaped on a potter's wheel. The orange-peel-like outer glaze was created when the potter threw handfuls of common rock salt into a white-hot kiln during the piece's firing. Salt-glazed stoneware pieces were decorated with an amazing array of designs, including the unusual acrobat and horse on this piece.

Summary

Henry J. Heinz rarely missed an opportunity to market his "57 Varieties" -- a catchy slogan he created despite offering a line of more than 60 packaged food products. A prolific promoter, Heinz aimed to reach consumers in stores, at home, and everywhere in-between. This colorful poster advertised Heinz Chow Chow Pickle, a kind of relish, to passengers riding a streetcar.
