A French Majolica pitcher by Frie Onnaing circa 1870-1900. The pitcher shape is a tapered hexangonal form with an angular handle. The pitcher is decorated with panels of stylized roses reminiscent of the Mackintosh Rose Motif, with the concentric rows of angular petals and other secessionist design elements. The color scheme is of a background of deep rich olive green with the leaves in a mix of light green and olive. The details of the roses are brought out with a deep red glaze that has settled into the petals. The interior is finished in the same deep red glaze as the roses. On the bottom " 776 Frie Onnaing made in France" is inscribed. Condition is overall good there two hairline cracks, one near the handle which is approximately 1.5" and a second one that starts at a quarter inch rim chip and is approximately 1". There are scattered fleabites to the raised rose motifs. Please examine image #6 thur #9 above for details. These flaws are minor and do not distract from the presentation of this antique piece. Measurements are 7 1/4" T X 5" W across the base and 6 3/4" across from spout to handle.
