On offer is a large pearlware relief molded pitcher with pink lustre trim. Featured are figures of putti and a goat with an anthemion border around the top of the pitcher. This type of decoration was very popular in the 1820's when this was made. The pitcher is reasonably light and shows an incised X on the bottom, a rather common marking. The combination of enamels and lustre gives a striking appearance, There is the expected bluish pooling of pearlware glaze in glaze-collecting areas.
Dimensions: Height is 6 1/4" to the top of the handle, 7 1/2" from handle to spout, and about 4 3/4" in width.
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips or cracks and there is no restoration. The glaze is unworn, there is no discoloration and the enamel colors are unworn. The pink lustre is excellent with virtually no wear, even to the top of the rim.
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.
