This nineteenth century bisque stoneware pottery carafe has transfer decoration of birds in branches, with brightly colored enameling over it. Base is tan, and unglazed except for the neck and stopper. Dark brown ring striping on neck and stopper. Makers mark is difficult to decipher, but I believe it to be German, as part of the name is "Schutz". Rest of the impressed mark shows an urn. Additional markings/numbers were probably workshop numbers. Very Victorian and decorative, I would date this circa 1870.
Size: Approximately 10.5" total height.
Condition: Good. Some signs of wear and use, nothing too distracting. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
