Now here's a piece you don't see too often.
This vintage, terra cotta pitcher was handcrafted in Madrid, Spain and appears to be a souvenir from the Coliseo El Escorial, a theatre of performing arts founded in 1770. We believe she depicts the Wicked Witch in L. Frank Baum's 'Wizard of Oz' who wore an eye patch (despite its absence in the 1939 MGM film).
This pitcher stands 12" tall with her removable, pointy blue hat. It is 5" wide across the base and 5" wide front to back (including handle).
It is made of terra cotta clay, hand-painted and glazed. It is also signed by the artisan on the bottom, but difficult to make out.
This pitcher is in excellent condition, without chips or cracks. There is crazing throughout which is common for vintage pottery and not really noticeable without close observation.
A pretty piece to say the least, very hard to find and quite collectible.
