Fishscale and Wild Roses Hot Water Stoneware Blue and White Pitcher - Jug
This is part of a washstand set that would have included the hot water pitcher, large water pitcher and washbowl, small pitcher and washbowl, toothbrush vase, soap dish, powder box, chamber pot, and shaving mug.
NOTE: This is the hot water pitcher and this one was manufactured with yellow clay so the color is more tan than white. If you are needing to match other pieces of a wash stand set, please keep the color in mind. I have seen other pieces of this Fishscale and Wild Roses in the tan and blue and I have read that the tan and blue are scarce. The blue color in the cameo decoration and the medallion enclosing the roses is strong and well defined.
CONDITION: I don't see any damage to this piece. There are the usual small pops in the glaze and some mold variations that come with the manufacturing of utilitarian stoneware. If you are facing the spout, there is one 1/2" hairline just to the left of the spout. I don't see any chips or dings that might have caused it. Hairline cracks are sometimes caused from temperature fluctuations over many years. There is a picture included.
