Even with its flaws, the size and molding of this large pitcher or jug was so impressive I had to put it in my shop. Pattern is of ivy vines encircling the body with a heavy fine handle. Gilt acccents.
Bottom has raised "pad mark" with pattern name "Ivy" and maker initials LDR (I have not been able to trace this maker).
English, ca. 1840
Size: Approximately 10"high, 12" widest (handle to spout)
Condition: Fair. Star crack in bottom, Interior cracks at handle base (not visible on exterior) with rivet reinforcement. Some minor flakes to glaze at a few high points. No other chips, cracks or repairs.
(Sounds worse than it looks)
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.
