Offered is a good sized stoneware pitcher with interior and exterior glazed surface and applied molding showing a familiar scene depicting wine pouring/drinking. These are frequently referred to as Bacchus jugs after Bacchus, the god of wine. The molded decoration really stands out on the white background and the acanthus style molded handle adds to the charm of this item. The totally glazed molding is typical of the 1820's to 1830 period.
Dimensions: Height is 5", length from spout to handle is 8" and 5 1/2 "
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips, cracks or restoration. The glaze and surface is smooth and unworn and the molding is clear. There is some discoloration surrounding a few hardly visible glaze lines on the bottom as show. These lines are truly light and do not go through to the interior.
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.
