Somebody didn't have his coffee this morning. This Native American Indian Chief is not happy and the hatchet and knife in his hands are not comforting. But what a great pitcher he is!
This early German bisque porcelain figural pitcher is hand-painted and so well detailed. The expressive face with open mouth as the spout is very well done. His Native garb is painted light green with embossed detailing impressed into the porcelain. His feather hat has a gilded band and the feathers are painted in red, yellow and blue colors.
The pitcher measures 4 1/2 inches across from nose to handle. It's 5 inches high. The base is unmarked except for a hand-written '12'. The IINSIDE edge has a flake which is barely noticed unless you know it's there. Minimal paint wear to the feathers. On the back, there's a faint black line? mark? next to his shoe....it's not on the surface but is 'baked in' along with the rest of the paint.
Overall, this fantastic Chief pitcher is in excellent vintage condition. He gets your attention. Circa 1920s.
