This listing is for a colorful Art Nouveau style pitcher made by the Onnaing Company during the last quarter of the 19th Century. Onnaing was located in the North of France near the Belgium border. The company was best known for their Art Nouveau floral motif pitchers featuring assorted flowers in the design. Pitcher is marked with an impressed shield surmounted by an incised crown with "Frie" on the left of the shield and "Onnaing" on the right. "France" is found below the shield and number "759" is found above the crown. The interior of the pitcher has the rich raspberry color that Onnaing pieces are known for.
Dimensions: 8 1/4" high, 7" wide (from mouth to handle) with a 4 1/4" overall width and base measuring 3 1/2" in diameter. Weighs 1.10 pounds.
Condition: The pitcher is in excellent Estate condition with vivid colors and nice glaze - no chips, cracks or repairs. There is a color and glaze skip on the bottom front of the base as made (see photos). The bottom is made with four slightly raised "feet" that are also not glazed but as made. The pitcher also has some minor crazing around the center that really does not detract in any way from the beauty of this piece.
