Presented by The Yellow Garage Antiques is this 1800s era ovoid stoneware pitcher with an applied strap handle. Stoneware pottery was the most common material for housewares made in the 18th and 19th centuries. The clay used in stoneware was strong and malleable which could be easily worked on the potters’ wheel. The clay was also widely available in many locations which contributed to its regular use. This diminutive pitcher stands 5 1\2 inches tall. The incised spiral decorated spout is a common decorative element of the era. The pitcher is unmarked and has two small age flakes in the base which are shown in the pictures. This unusual small ovoid handled pitcher will make a valuable addition to any early stoneware collection.
