An antique porcelain syrup pitcher that features a fabulous portrait on the front. The portrait is framed with gold and signed Constance on the bodice of her dress. The rest of the decoration consists of gold and art nouveau transfers with green and maroon coloring underneath.
We have three marks on the bottom; a bindenshield, M.Z. Austria and Wheelock that assist us in dating this to the late 1890's.
The syrup pitcher measures 5 3/4 inches tall to the top of the finial on the lid, and 5 inches from spout to handle. Except for a bit of gold wear, this is in fine condition without damage to porcelain.
