This listing is for a 19TH Century English Majolica pottery 7.25" gurgling fish pitcher or bouquet holder, c. 1880-1900. This whimsical pitcher has the shape of a fish with open mouth with the tail forming the handle. The GURGLING name comes from the sound heard when pouring liquid from the pitcher's mouth. The body is enameled in shades of blue-gray and brown with green in the design at the pedestal base. The interior throat area is a lovely lavender-pink color. Unmarked, however, these fish shaped pitchers (bouquet holders) are a design known to have been made by GEORGE MORLEY of East Liverpool,England so we believe it was probably produced by this maker.
Dimensions: 7 1/4" high with a maximum width of 4 ".
Condition: This nice pitcher is in excellent Estate condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The painting is nicely done and the glaze is thickly applied and any crazing is very minimal.
