Majolica ware is believed to have been introduced from Moorish Spain by way of the island of Majorca, and produced in Italy from the 14th century. Its popularity spread throughout the world, and exceptional examples can be found originating from several points in Europe, Britain and North America. In the 19th century there was a revival, which came to be known in English-speaking countries as Victorian majolica, with much use of molded surfaces and colorful glazes that remains popular today.
This elegant majolica pitcher, finished in a sunny yellow glaze with red accenting, features a lovely scrollwork band at its midsection which is echoed at the base, with a wonderful diamond-cut texture at the lower section, and finished with a beautiful scrolled handled adorned with acanthus.
Condition is excellent, free from chipping, cracking, crazing or restoration, with nearly imperceptible glaze nick at the spout.
