This sought after pattern is so very elegant! Covered in gold and platinum, this AURA ARGENTA LINEAR cider or lemonade pitcher, is a show-stopper, standing 6" high and measuring over 9" at the widest. It is signed HESSLER (Robert Hessler), and carries Pickard mark 6 (1910-1912). This mark most likely covers the maker's mark for the blank. The blank itself has a slightly hexagonal shape. It is in very nice condition, with some gold wear to the handle area, and the usual "rubs" to the gold and platinum that is typical of these softer glazes. A very stunning piece!
