This is just a gorgeous jug! The spout is in the form of a fish. The pitcher has relief work in the form of gilded fish scales, it also has a pastel floral bouquet with gold slip trailing. This item is in wonderful condition, free from chips, cracks, crazing, stains. It does have a little bit on gilding missing on the ornate twig handle. There is something in the bottom of the jug that is made with it, it may be that the fish ate something or it may be a baby fish, it looks to have two eyes. (see photos) The jug is fully marked with the Amphora Work mark and the number 301. This is a beautiful piece befitting any fine Turn Teplitz porcelain collection.
This item measures 4 3/4" tall, from spout to handle it is 4 1/2", the base is 2 1/8 across.
Feel free to contact me with any questions or for additional photos.
