On offer is an extra large stoneware pitcher with applied relief molding of hunting scenes from about 1810 to 1820. The top, as is typical of these, is done in a brown enamel evenly to a certain level. The molded decoration has been applied, as typical of that era, on to molded pattern background. The handle is molded at the top and nicely at the bottom where it joins the body. There is an engine turned pattern at the base. The pitcher is lightly glazed as expected. Not many are found in this unusually large size.
Dimensions: Height is 7 1/8", length is almost 9" from handle to spout, and the diameter is 6 1/2".
Condition: Excellent. The glaze is smooth and unworn, not over-applied, the enamel is smooth and unworn with good color, and the molding is clear and sharp. There are no chips, cracks and there is no restoration. There is the slightest amount of wear to the enamel on the underside of the spout as shown.
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.
