This old gem still has bright colors but definitely has been used, which is kind of neat to wonder just who has had this little gem. It has a bright turquoise upper portion background that has bright green leaves with red tips applied in a raised relief effect on each side. The handle and rim are done in a deep brown color. The lower bulbous portion of this piece is separated from the upper portion by a rope design. The lower portion is a cream color in a basket weave design. The lower part has some wear on the majolica finish and is a deeper color where the wear is. The spout of this piece has been broken and repaired which is noticeable if you look at it from the spout side. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE. This would make a wonderful addition to any majolica collection.
This piece is listed in the "Collectors Encyclopedia of Majolica by Mariann Katz~ Marks" pg 92.
