This vintage 9 inch tall stoneware pitcher has a white glaze with a cobalt blue stenciled Dutch scene on each side. There is cobalt hand applied on the rim and around the bottom as well. This pitcher dates to between about 1910 and the 1930's. It has some manufacturing flaws as is often the case with utilitarian stoneware from the early 20th century. This includes a couple small underglaze chips that occurred at the factory, glaze misses, some lines and rough spots in the clay. The glaze is crazed more on one side than the other. Please look at the photos closely as they are the best what to see how this approximately 100 year old pitcher looks. Overall it is in pretty good used condition with no post manufacture chips, cracks or repairs. The stenciled scene depicts a man and lady standing in a field or yard. In the background there is a windmill on the right and buildings (possibly a Homestead or small village) on the left. The man and woman are facing each other apparently deep in conversation. He has his hand in his pocket and she holds a young child in her arms. Each is wearing a Dutch style outfit. This blue and white stoneware pitcher is a nice piece to use and or display.
