Simply the best! The orchid pattern is one of the most desirable created by George Jones. The pitcher here is fully marked with the registration diamond and pattern number inked on the typical George Jones thumb print. It stands 8" tall ( 20.4 cm) and 8" wide. It is much larger than it appears to be in photographs. I dare anyone to hold it with one hand while it is filled with water! Impossible! Too heavy. The colors are magnificent. The whites, greens and browns with touches of yellow and pink are contrasted with the clear vibrant turquoise. A master piece!
The condition is very good, the only blemishes visible when pointed out are a small outside rim touch up and 3 short and faint interior hairlines running from the rim downwards, all pictured. The glaze is slick and pristine with just a tiny scrape on the upper edge of the handle. This c1870 Antique English Majolica George Jones Orchid pitcher looks flawless. A similar piece together with a large matching tray is illustrated on page 98, Abrams ''Majolica A complete History and illustrated Survey'' by Karmason & Stacke.
