Offered is a large blue and white transferprinted pitcher made by William Ridgeway and Son. The decoration is a striking scroll print. The mark on the bottom indicates a manufacturing date of 1838 to 1848. It has a bluish glaze over what they refer to as a granite china body. This is a very sturdy piece that would be excellent for display (or use for holding and serving liquids).
Dimensions: Height is 6 1/2" to top of handle, length is 7 1/4" from handle to spout, and diameter is 5 1/2" from corner to corner.
Condition: Great antique conditon. The glaze is smooth and has hardly any wear, the color is bright, there are no chips or cracks. There is a small spot of restoration to the top rim as shown and a tiny nick or two to the rim that is hardly worth mentioning.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing defect or repair. While this is normal and to be expected I note any known issues in the condition descriptions.
