This is a unique example of early Bing & Grondahl. This beautiful pitcher is hand painted with flowers under glaze. The "Saxon flower" was used for 1853 to 1894. It is beautiful clear porcelain and has a wonderful bisque lion perched on the top of the handle. The pitcher is trimmed in gold. The mark on the bottom (see pix) was used from 1853 (when founded) to 1897. Bing & Grondahl was the second pottery founded in Denmark, after Royal Copenhagen and was known for its quality. The dimensions are: approximately 10" tall, 6" wide, and 5.5" deep.
It is in mint condition with minor rubbing of the gold trim. The bisque lion is darling perched at the top of the handle peering into the pitcher.
