If you are going to collect vintage Western restaurant China, this highly valuable piece is a must. It is a Westward Ho Rodeo disc water pitcher manufactured by Wallace China Company (Los Angeles) in the 1950’s and 1960’s. It features a heavy roll rim design and holds 72 oz. Other patterns include Boots and Saddle, Longhorn and Pioneer, but this Rodeo pattern is my favorite.

    Gorgeous! And an excellent piece for your collection indeed. I really love the branding going on around the cowboy and his horse.

    Did they make exact matching plates to this or was it just meant to go with all of their Western patterns?

    I love the logo on the back.

    How many western themed pitchers do you have?

      Yes, they made full placesettings (including severing pieces, salt and pepper, ashtrays, etc.) in the Rodeo pattern (think I have shared a placesetting somewhere in here). I have two more Western pitchers – one is heavy glass and sits in a tooled leather coaster and another is a heavy ceramic tan pitcher with rust colored arrowhead designs.
