This item is a 9 1/2" porcelain pitcher designed as a 4-sided fish inspired pitcher. There is a full, beautiful and colorful fish on each side of the pitcher. The graceful curves of the pitcher follow the lines of the fish. The handle is a matching fish design. The interior is a pinkish tone. The exterior is finished with a glaze that enhances the beautiful realistic coloring of the fish. I find no damage to this piece. It is attributed to English maker history, dating to the Victorian Era (1870's). The size is approximately 9 1/2" in height. Graceful and beautiful to admire.
