    There is a similar line in the South called Blue Ridge.

      Oh yes, I know exactly what you are talking about! In researching my own pieces, I discovered some of the other options out there, as well.

  2. Diana Steinmetz says:

    Love this history! Thanks for sharing…..I will be on the look out now for these!!!

    How much did you spend on the pottery. I like to know the deals people get on thrifted items 😁

  4. Lynn Rue says:

    Thank you Danielle, This was interesting, I love pottery as well although I’ve never heard of Watts. Beautiful pieces! I’m in Northern California and I’ve never seen these but if I ever run into the dinner dishes, I’ll let you know! Thanks for sharing.

    Today I slowed down enough to read your blog. Often I have to rush through and speed read. I am trying to slow down. Love the thrift store finds and the the of Watt pottery.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Slowing down and enjoying the moment is a great goal for the new year! It is seriously so hard to do in our fast-paced lives.

    Fantastic. When I lived in LA I saw a lot of Franciscan California Pottery. It was a standard way back …post war. The apple design is very similar to the Watt. So charming. I started to collect Haeger because I inherited a piece from my grandmother. I love the creamy colour and now I have 6 pieces which go well with my English Beswick and California Poppytrail. It makes for a really nice display.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      I love that you got your first Haegar piece from your grandmother! That gives that much more meaning to your collection.

  7. Jane says:

    I love seeing your thrift store finds. I am always looking for pottery an our local Thrift Stores. Prices have gone up a lot in the last few years. I enjoy watching you and Deb each week. Thank you for sharing.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yes, I am sometimes shocked at how pricey some things can be at the thrift store. I get taken by surprise on occasion.

  8. Georgena Allen says:

    Thank you for sharing your awesome finds. I lived in Crooksville , Ohio where Watt Pottery was located. My husband was an electrical contractor and did the electrical work for Watt and most of the other potteries. The annual pottery conventions were wonderful to see all the pottery displays. There is a pottery museum there also worth a visit if you are in the area. I hope you find the matching plates also.

  9. Rose Meyer says:

    I’ve been collecting Watt apple for 40 years. I remember only paying a couple of dollars for each piece. Then Country Living had an article that showed the apple pottery. Prices went waaaay up! Nowadays, you can find deals like you did. My favorite pieces are the mugs.

  10. Debbie Dean says:

    I collect Watt Apple as well. My granddaughter and I found a small apple pitcher with advertisement at our nearby Webster Flea here in Florida. It was $2! Your find is so great!!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh my gosh.. that’s an excellent price. I think I have one with an advertisement on it too.

    I have a huge bowl, mixing bowl size, of the apple that was moms. In the fall it’s filled with apples. The rest of the year I have to keep my daughter from using it as a mixing bowl (but I do let her use the vintage Pyrex).
