A cherub is one of the unearthly beings who directly attend to God, according to Abrahamic religions. The numerous depictions of cherubim assign to them many different roles, such as protecting the entrance of the Garden of Eden.

This beautiful Art Nouveau pitcher/ewer, circa 1930, is decorated with two delightful transfer motifs of playful cherubs. Both the front and back of the pitcher/ewer portrays a different scene of three darling cherubs engaged in play against a background of puffy clouds, fruit, flowers and even a crown and arrow. The color pallet and detail makes the scenes pop to life. The double handles, rim and base of the pitcher/ewer is hand painted in a striking rosy/pink. The piece measures 7 1/4" in height, 5 1/2" in length and 2 1/2 in width. The porcelain blank is unmarked. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
