This beauty has been part of my fruit collection for many, many years. This is wonderfully hand painted with rich, ripe red strawberries on both sides of the pitcher. The artist has painted very realistic looking leaves and tucked in their pretty white flower blossoms along with shadow leaves to further accent this lovely piece. The ornate handle, rim and base are painted in thick, luscious gold. It is perfectly defined with a lovely blending of accent colors.
The pitcher/ewer stands 10 1/4" tall.
It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, hairlines or damage. The painting is beautiful and the gold is perfect.
It is unmarked, but looks to be either Limoges or Bavarian as they had very very similar molds of this type.
