The artist has done an outstanding job on this piece. It's the prettiest one I've ever seen!! She has painted the base of the pitcher, the handle and the spout a deep pine green. The center portion of the pitcher has a muted green, cream and browns all melded together. On this warm background she has painted incredible rendition of a goldfinch bird sitting on an apple tree branch on one side and another bird flying in to land on a branch on the other. The blossoms on the branch are done in a white with just a hint of pink for the open flowers and a deep pink for the buds. The deep green leaves add just the right balance for this wonderful masterpiece. The artist `B or E Witmer' has signed the front of this piece. This appears to be a Bavarian or Limoges mold but the artist has painted the bottom of this piece making it impossible to identify by the backstamp. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc
Measures: 7 ½" spout to handle X 6" H
