Here is a milk or perhaps cider pitcher decorated with a charming scene of a Chinese lady holding a parasol standing next to a child in a garden landscape with fence. The same scene is repeated (but without the child—whoops!) on the other side. The pitcher was hand-thrown on the potter’s wheel. It is five and seven-eighths inches high, completely undamaged except for a faint star-hairline on the underside. The unsophisticated painting shows a slight bit of wear. This piece came from a notable Chicago collection where every piece had something unique and special about it.
