An early Victorian Parian pitcher with phenomenal craftsmanship and detail. This large and impressive work features scenes of a battle being fought by Julius Caesar. The color is a beautiful and consistent caramel. This Staffordshire area pitcher is in perfect condition, with no staining, chips, cracks or damage. Even the pewter lid in in incredible shape. It was loved and well kept for the past 178 years or so, and needs a new home where it will be appreciated for its history and beauty. Measures 10 inches tall to the very top of the pewter handle. An heirloom!
Note: the light areas in the picture of the inside is dust. There is no discoloration or staining. This can easily be cleaned if desired. We left it alone as we did not wish to take any chances with this great piece of history.
