On offer is a blue topped molded stoneware pitcher dating from 1810-1820. The decoration is an applied relief molding of a gathering of people and animals above an engine turned relief pattern at the base. The top of the pitcher has a blue enamel coating done in a style popular during that period. The glaze is lighter than the glossier version seen on pitchers from the 1820's. The molding is sharp, the spout delicate, and the potting is not crude but very well done.
Dimensions: Height is 4 5/8", diameter is 3 1/2" and it measures 5" from spout to handle.
Condition: Excellent. The pitcher has been well preserved. There are no chips, cracks, and there is no staining or restoration. The molding is sharp, the glaze is unworn, and the enamel is bright and glossy. An excellent addition to a collection.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
