This would make a wonderful decorating statement anywhere you decided to put it! This pitcher is what is considered "Calvertine " ware. It is similar in its composition to the Haynes " Avalon" pieces, but quite different in decorative treatment, being turned upon the lathe, with spaces for bands, upon which were overlaid conventional relief ornaments. This produced a refined effect when treated with delicate colors and outlined with darker tints of gold. The "Castilian" pitcher is worthy of special mention, being Moorish in form, in relief ornamentation, and in color. The upper portion has a raised relief boarder in soft taupe color with leaf designs accented with gold. The body portion has a light grayish olive green background with darker geometric designs. The pitcher has an up-turned pointed handle. This piece can be seen in "The Pottery and Porcelain of the United States By Edwin Atlee Barber". There are no other cracks or chips on this magnificent piece!
Measures: 7 ¾" H x 6 ½" W
