French Longwy majolica pitcher / jug. Of large proportions, the jug holds two cups of liquid up to the bottom of the collar approximately. The pitcher is clearly marked on the underside with the crowned Lorraine cross circular mark used between the early 1900's and 1955. The faiencierie de Longwy was founded in a former Carmelite convent purchased in 1798 by Pierre-Joseph Boch, Charles Regnier and Nicolas Soldez. Longwy's patterns were inspired by free form oriental designs fashionable at the time. Each color is outlined in black resembling the effect of wire in cloisonne. One of Longwy's first clients was Napoleon I who ordered a large dinnerware set of which a tureen still survives and is on display at the Longwy Municipal Museum. In very good condition with minor imperfections as shown. Its original removable fitted metal strainer, with shows some wear, is included as a bonus. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 4 3/4" high by 6" widest point (handle to spout) by 4 1/4 diameter at base approximately.
