This spectacular light blue transferware wash pitcher in the beautiful “Canova” pattern was produced by the Thomas Mayer Potteries, Longport. The bottom is stamped with the manufacturer’s mark. It dates to circa 1835.
The pitcher is classically shaped with a scalloped rim and ornate handle.
Canova is one of the romantic patterns and depicts a bay with san-pan boats travelling an inlet. The foreground shows architectural urns on pedestals, along with temple like buildings, trees and flowers. The border around the top has flowers, a boat and mountains in the distance. The handle is decorated with tiny blue flowers.
The pitcher is 10" tall and 9" from handle to spout.
The condition is really good. This pitcher originally had a wash basin also, but it is in really bad condition.
