This old beauty has a mauve background with basket weave raised relief around the center, linked circles around the top and geometric designs around the base. It has a beautiful cream raised relief bird sitting on a flowering branch on one side and a flowering branch on the other. The cream color is also in the inside of the pitcher and on the branch like handle. The bird and flowers have been accented with gold that is worn but still has a nice effect. Some of the mauve background is allowing the cream color to come through giving it an overall nice effect. There is a crack on the spout and by the handle and several rim chips, please see pictures for details. This would still make a wonderful display piece! IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
This would make a wonderful addition to any majolica collection.
Measures: 7 1/4" H X 4 3/4" W
