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!


Tall Drink  5 1/2"  high.. & have a heavy ceramic look & feel


above.  original open leg 3 1/2" tall  & closed leg  3 3/16th " tall

THREE VINTAGE BOTTOMS UP CUPS.  THE FIRST TWO ARE WHITE CLOUD WITH OVAL MOUTH AND THE THIRD IS VINTAGE REPRODUCTION WITH ROUND MOUTH.  SO IT'S EASY TO TELL REPROS!
