Antique, ironstone pitcher that is greyish white, with a hand applied spongeware pattern (under the clear glaze) in dark blue and forest green. It is 5&1/4 inches tall, and 6&1/2 inches from the tip of the spout to the end of the handle. As you can see in the photos, there are a few small dings, and wear to the glaze, on the rim. The spout retains its shape, but has a larger, shallow chip on it. There is one small, shallow chip on the bottom that doesn't show when displayed. The inside is also glazed, and the handle perfectly sturdy, and the pitcher is perfectly useable to hold liquids. On the bottom was taped an old, hand written piece of tape with the word, "Freiburg". I believe this was referring to Freiburg, Germany, but cannot be certain. The only mark in the pottery is what looks like a number "4" on the bottom. Very heavy for its size, weighing almost 1&1/2 pound, before packing. Great looking decorator piece for a primitive style kitchen or room, and excellent addition to a collection of vintage, ironstone pottery.
