Offered for purchase is a beautiful Jean Pouyat (JP) Limoges Apple Design Cider/Lemonade Pitcher (Signed "Ruth Bocart Morgan"/c.1912-1930) hand-painted/decorated in the US or Canada as part of the Arts & Crafts movement.
The design for this item is by Henrietta Barclay Paist and may be found in the December 1912 issue of Keramic Studio Magazine. A photo of the page is included in this listing. Keramic Studio Magazine was a monthly publication for the amateur porcelain/china decorator which provided designs, detailed instructions on porcelain/china decorating, as well as articles and photographs of competitions and displays between various china decorating studios and clubs. The magazine was first published in May 1899 and continued into the late-1920’s; it then became Design Magazine, which addressed a wider range of designs than china decorating and craft work, and continued publication into the 1930’s.
The pitcher is in excellent condition... no chips, cracks or repairs, although there are some surface scratches and wear from age and use. The pitcher is approximately 5.5 inches tall, 9 inches in diameter at the widest, and is marked as indicated in the pictures.
