Shawnee? Designed by George Rumrill?

W: 8 ¾” (spout to handle)
Many features of this pitcher/carafe: its wider, straighter neck; the full rubber gasket under the handle; the rounded end of the copper bracket; the fully glazed bottom - put it at odds with: Bauer; Franciscan; Gladding, McBean Co.; and Haeger (among others).
A pottery expert answered, on-line, the very question we have here – what is this? “The looped handle batter pitcher (emphasis ours) is a slightly modified version of the Red Wing batter pitcher made for Rumrill Pottery (George Rumrill, a former Red Wing designer) by another pottery, most likely Shawnee.”
Unfortunately, the lid is lost.
Minor condition issues: discoloration of the glaze along the side of the handle, polish marks on the copper, a very small chip out of the wood where the handle meets the body of the carafe under the bracket (both images are of the same flaw), minor crazing – mostly inside.
