In 1841 a small pottery was established in Syracuse, New York, which through the years evolved into the Onondaga Pottery Company and in 1891 the manufacture of Syracuse China was begun.
This lovely milk/water pitcher is from the Imperial Geddo line, which was only in production from 1891-1895. The oval shaped blank is decorated with a transfer design of delicate pink and gray daisies on long, slender stems with shaded green foliage. Graceful gold scrolls and brushed gold handle and rim complete the image. The pitcher measures 7" in height and 8 1/2" from handle-to-handle. Stamped with the stylized Chinese Dragon mark and "China - O. P. Co." below. This mark was substituted for the Imperial Geddo mark from 1893-1895. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint condition.
