A wild rose on tree bark majolica pitcher is the mainstay of every majolica collection, and this one’s a beauty, c.1880-90’s. It’s just over 7” high x 5.25” wide x 6” from spout to handle, and features lovely pink wild roses and buds and their green foliage on a background of realistic brown tree bark. The interior is pale turquoise, the number ‘96’ is written on the yellow base, and there are yellow tree knurls around the base, typical of an unknown American maker who made various types of naturalistic pitchers with this feature. An example of this pitcher in turquoise can be seen on page 94 of the book “The Collector’s Encyclopedia of Majolica” by Mariann Katz-Marks.

In excellent antique condition, with no chips or flakes. The spout has a professional repair on the exterior only, plus there’s one extremely tight interior hairline that doesn’t appear on the exterior.
