What luscious, realistic berries surround this hand painted cider jug! The artwork is excellent. Lots of gold trim, and fine black pen work. This beauty is in excellent condition. This piece can definitely hold its own in any collection of Pickard, Stouffer, etc. In fact, if you look in the Pickard China Collector's Guide (updated), on page 250, plate 704, is the same Roma-style jug, with a nearly identical berry pattern, from Brauer Studio. Perhaps this artist was "inspired" by the Brauer piece!
Hand painted on a Bavarian blank, with a scalloped rim and handle. I do not find an artist's signature.
Height at spout: 7" Width at widest: 8-1/2"
