Lenox Belleek H.P. Cider PItcher w/Currants Motif - image 1 of 9

Jonathan Coxon, Sr., who served as superintendent of the Ott & Brewer plant during most of the period of American Belleek production, entered into a partnership with Walter Scott Lenox in 1889 establishing the Ceramic Art Company at Prince and Mead Streets. He and Lenox applied their knowledge of the new process to their own production. Coxon retired in 1896, but Lenox continued the Ceramic Art Company changing the company name to Lenox in 1906. From the very inception, the Ceramic Art Company/Lenox concentrated its effort on the creation of high quality Belleek porcelains creating some of the finest decorative porcelains ever produced in the United States.

This beautiful hand painted cider pitcher, circa 1915, was decorated in a home-studio environment or factory/professional decorating studio. The pitcher is decorated with clusters of apricot/red currants nestled among shaded green and tan leaves and suspended from trailing brown vines. The background is a muted variation of pastel blue, green yellow, apricot and cream. The decorative handle and rim is decorated with gold.

The cider pitcher measures 5 3/4" in height, 4 1/2" across the top, 7" across the widest portion of the body and 8" from spout-to-handle. It is stamped in green with the "artist palette" mark and script "L" over "Belleek", used from 1906-1924. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. A beautiful piece with not the usual choice of decoration.
