On offer is a large copper lustre pitcher with a wide band of pink lustre decoration on a pink wash background in a house pattern. This would date from the 1830's to about 1840. The relief molded spout and upper rim border along with the solid bright color make this appealing for display. These large jugs were popularly given as gifts.
Dimensions: The pitcher is 8 3/4" to the top of the handle and about 8" to the top of the spout and rim. The length from spout to handle is 8 1/4" and the diameter of the base is 4 1/2".
Condition: Average to good. There is a hard to see line near the bottom of the outside as shown and is visible on the inside. There is a slight smudge of dullness on one spot of the shoulder as shown and very slight wear to a couple of spots on the top of the pink lustre. Otherwise, there are no chips,cracks and there is no restoration. The glaze is smooth and the copper and pink colors are good
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.
