Vintage Nice Size Glazed Pottery Milk Pitcher with Raised Floral Design Brown and Green Colors, England
Description: A beautiful brown and green colored milk pitcher with raised floral design made in England. The pitcher has a flat round base with a foot at the edge of the base and straight rising sides, which end at a shoulder and then continues to rise straight up to a slightly scalloped rim. The pitcher has a spout and a shaped applied handle. The top half of the pitcher has green coloring while the bottom half has brown coloring. The pitcher has a raised floral and foliate design in the top three quarters and a raised scroll design on the bottom quarter. The pitcher is stamped England on the bottom. Although the stamp is not very sharp, we were able to read it and determine that it said England. Please carefully review the photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
Date: Uncertain but most likely early to mid 1900s.
Size: Measures 3 5/8" diameter at the base, 3 1/2" diameter on top, 5 3/4" at its widest including the handle and the spout and is ~6" high. The piece weighs a bit over one pound.
Marks: Marked on the bottom with the word "England".
Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a nice piece for the collector of English pottery.
Condition: The mug is in very good condition with no chips, hairlines, cracks, or repairs. The piece has overall crazing to the glaze inside and out. The piece is also soiled and stained on the foot at the edge of the base, but we believe this is an artifact of the making and original to the piece. Please see photos for additional condition information.
In Closing: This is a nice piece made in England. Would make a nice addition to your collection of English pottery.
