This salt glaze barrel shaped, stoneware pitcher is 8 1/2" tall, 3 7/8" at the base, and 3 3/4" wide at the rim. There is 3/16" wide stripe of cobalt blue 3/4" from the top, and another 3/4" from the grey glaze throughout. The blue spongeware is contained within the stripes. Nice, even sponge decoration all over, and on the handle. A few small chips on the base, not visible unless the pitcher is turned over, and one small, old chip on the rim.
