This is a great late 19th or early 20th century enamel Petroleum pitcher. Probably German but could be American. Holding 2 liters the piece has a bale (wire and wood) handle and copper (I think) lid. Several areas of loss to enamel but with an overall very nice look. Approximately 10 inches tall. A great stylist look. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Either email any day of the week or call at our store 574-594-9100 on Friday, or Saturday. A word about condition. Those of you who have purchased from me before know that I am very picky about condition. I will try to note anything of significance in the description. However, please check the photos carefully---as they say `a picture is worth a thousand words' We will help arrange shipping for you; our experience with large or small has been excellent. We do offer an easy layaway program. Usually 20% down, with the remaining term somewhat negotiable. Please email us before you buy if you would like to discuss layaway terms. We have been in business over 30 years and our reputation is without flaw.
