This is a German small cream or milk pitcher produced by the Porcelain Factory Tettau, or Royal Bayreuth. The date is in the range of 1902 to 1957; however this type of production was closer to 1902.
The pitcher or jug is 4 ½" high and the mouth is 4 to 4 1/2" wide.
The rim of the mouth has an irregular curvy shape and is trimmed in black enamel.
Around the middle of the pitcher is a landscape scene of three cows grazing near a mountain lake. There are a few sailboats and across the lake is the distant gray of a rugged shoreline. The scene is trimmed with bands of black enamel.
The ground above and below the scene is brown with a floral overlay. The flowers below the spout have dots of applied blown enamel. The handle is brown. The inside and bottom are glazed white.
There are no chips, cracks or crazing. There is a tiny bit of wear to the landscape scene, which shows as small bit of white showing through and these little bits of white can be seen in the photo where the handle points to the left.
The blue printed mark is the one of two crowned lions holding shields and facing a crowned head; the words Royal Bayreuth are above and Bavaria is below.
