Presenting a very charming vintage English lidded pitcher. The hand-applied decorations straddle the transition between the Art Nouveau to the Arts and Crafts movements, showing elements of each. They include curvilinear twining vines topped with wonderfully geometric flowers executed in a graduating tint of rich red-violet transitioning to blue.
The elements of the shape of the pitcher are reinforced with green outline along the handle, around the top, and along the edges of the lid and its handle. There are some raised flourishes details in the lid and a thoughtful tab detail below the handle. This pitcher would be picked up with a thumb resting above the handle for balance and three fingers threaded through it. The rounded tab provides the perfect place to rest a fourth finger for greater comfort and control while pouring.
Measures 4 1/2 " High X 6 1/2' from spout to end of handle. In very good condition other than some fine crazing and a minor flea bite along the edge near the spout. Marked "Wellor & Co." (obviously unrelated to the American firm Weller) with the pattern name "Vernon" within the company shield mark.
