The maker of this pitcher certainly wanted it all: An interesting shape, with a branch form handle spreading over the body, an elaborate collar ruffle and scallop, transfer printed florals with added color, and copper luster trim on the branches and leaves.
No maker's mark; printed numeral 6 on bottom probably a shape or size number.
English, ca. 1855.
A nice clean example of an interesting form.
Size: Approximately 8 3/8" high; bottom diameter 4 7/8"
Condition: Excellent. Glaze crazing, copper on handle has turned greenish (as is common with this type of ware). No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
