1.)Original open leg bottoms up 2.) later closed leg 3&4) ca.late 1940's ..early 1950's tall drink bottoms up. All White Cloud Note: the Tall drink bottoms up from the 1950s have a Round mouth... All other White Cloud Pottery bottoms up have an Oval Mouth!... this is easy way to tell the Real from the Repros... look for the oval mouth on White Cloud. There are a lot of old vintage reproductions on e bay, w/ crazing that are vintage.. But they have to have an oval mouth to be White Cloud!
