This large stoneware pitcher features a Grandpa in the garden with three sweet little children, playing with a proud mother cat and her four adorable kittens. The caption above the picture reads "Warmth and affection; near or apart, those that love stay young at heart." It stands 6 3/4" high and 7 1/2" across including the handle, a perfect size for milk or lemonade. It is marked USA on the base and is in perfect condition with no damage of any sort. I am sorry that I do not know the maker or the age, but it is a nice quality stoneware and a lovely decorative piece. Please be sure to click on photo for enlargement and more pictures so that you can really enjoy this lovely piece and take a minute or two to check out some of our other treasures.
