What a fabulous old pitcher, tankard style! It presents the gold round Pickard mark from 1912-1922; and created on a blank marked for Heinrich & Co of Selb Bavaria. The overall etched raised gold flowers which The Pickard company used so beautifully is the background for a lovely canter cameo of a hand painted flower basket with pink roses, green leaves and a blue ribbon on top; with matching floral spray at the top in a white band that surrounds the top of the pitcher. The Pickard artist has signed it on the back top band, a little hard to make out the name, it appears to be E. Vobor. This magnificent piece measures 9 & 1/4" tall , with a 6" diameter base. It is in very good condition; we see no repairs, no damage, no cracks or chips. There is some wear to the gold finish on the bottom of the sides as they curve under to the base, simply from being moved around over the years., and a few tiny dark spots on the gold background here and there. We really had to look close to find them. This came from a fine estate of a very wealthy family with a huge collection of fine china and silver.
