There are no records of exactly when Shreve sold its first gurgling cod, or where that first batch was manufactured. What is known is that the original pitchers were made at the request of Benjamin Dale Shreve (whose son, Richard, would be the last family member to run the company), and that they were modeled after a traditional English “glug jug” but given a local hook with the anatomically correct fins, gills, and scales of one of New England’s most enduring symbols. The first batch, all brown, depicted a cod with rounded fins and a flared mouth, balancing on its tail—which curved around to meet the fish’s chin, forming the handle.

A strong back end of the bullpen — led by , that closer who’s still here — and six strong starters have the Bluefish among the league’s top pitching staffs, statistically. And though the numbers don’t suggest the Bluefish are an offensive powerhouse, they’ve had some good individual years and like their situational hitting.

The handles on the fish and pig pieces form obvious holes on the inside where they meet the pitcher body (see details in Figs. 11 & 12) which is a clear sign of a new piece. But looking into or feeling the sides of the teapot and frog pitcher, no holes can be found where the handles join the bodies. Does this mean the handles are solid? No, you just need to look carefully at the whole piece. Under close examination you'll find firing holes (Fig. 13) in both handles. Firing holes permit expanding air to escape from hollow pieces when they are fired in a kiln. On the frog, it is on the outside of the bottom; on the teapot, it is on the inside loop.Brown-Gurgling fish pitchers from GurglePot also known as gurgling cod, gurgle pitchers, and gurgling fish pitchers.
