Lenox China produced the unusual and distinctive soft pink of this fine quality William Penn Treaty Commemorative pitcher. Great for use as a vase, too, this soft pink Toby Jug commemorates the Treaty that William Penn made with Chief Tamanend in 1683. This Treaty, known as the "Great Treaty," was the only treaty between the pioneers and the Native Americans that was "...never sworn to and never broken..." according to the French philosopher and writer, Voltaire. The pitcher is a detailed depiction of the torso of William Penn. The word "Treaty" is incised on the back, where he holds the large, scrolled treaty in his left hand. "William Penn" is faintly incised on his back near the bottom of the treaty, and there is an incised B. at the rear bottom left for the artist who designed this piece. The shaped handle is creamy white and depicts a Native American, likely Chief Tamanend.
The bottom is stamped with the blue-green Lenox, "L" in wreath mark, followed by "Made in U.S.A." This mark was used by Lenox between 1930 and 1953, and 1933 marked the 250th anniversary of this treaty.
This pink porcelain pitcher measures 6-3/4 inches tall and ranges from 4- to 6-inches in diameter at various places from top to bottom.
There is shelf wear on the bottom, but there is no damage.
