Absolutely beautiful! This Pink Lusterware Pitcher measures 6 1/2" tall ( to top of handle) and approximately 7 1/2" wide. Unmarked. Most lusterware of this age was unmarked. Lusterware was popular between 1790 - 1880"s and it was manufactured by many potteries. I wish I knew the maker of this lovely piece! There are three bands of pink metallic sheen that gives the effect of iridescence. The rim is a border of hand painted flowers in pink, purple, with green leaves. The lower body is a large band of purple with three white moulded reliefs. One large scene of a man sitting on a barrel with his head resting on another barrel. He is between two trees. There is a small dog sleeping at his feet. The smaller reliefs are women in flowing robes. The handle is ornately done with pink luster trim.
Condition: two rim chips, one spout rim side, one under lip, a few flicks of green leave paint missing, overall crazing on the white body, no crazing on the purple part of the body.
