Here is another rare John Buck pixie piece I recently acquired - the John Buck "Dressing" Cruet with pixie head. England did not have a license to import from Japan. So when John Buck met John Howard and saw the items he produced, John Buck became a supplier of Holt Howard items to Europe. They were produced by his own pottery production unit of John E Buck & Co. and have some variations from the US pixies. Because they weren't as popular in Europe as they were in the US, they are pretty rare. Buck only made DRESSING, OIL, and VINEGAR. Whereas HH made the Sally OIL, Sam VINEGAR, and then made 3 different salad dressing jars - the FRENCH DRESSING, ITALIAN DRESSING, and the RUSSIAN DRESSING. So baisically Buck modeled his Dressing/Oil/Vinegar after the 3 HH Salad Dressing cruets. He only had ONE Dressing jar and that had the head similar to the HH French Dressing cruet. Buck's Oil and Vinegar had heads modeled after the HH Russian and Italian Salad Dressing cruets. No chips, cracks or staining.
