Offered is a delightful pitcher with a silver lustre trim and a reddish brown transfer print of the figure for Hope. Hope was one of three scenes from the Faith, Hope,and Charity group that shows a woman watching a ship depart with her loved one on board, has faith that he is having a safe journey at sea, and is generous in taking care of others, including children, when he does not return. The print shows a large anchor to emphasize this and was done by the bat printing technique. The silver lustre trim works well with this. I have not decided whether it is of pearlware or creamware as the glaze, which is greenish as much as bluish, was pretty typical of creamware from this period and the body when viewed from the inside definitely has the appearance of later creamware.
Dimensions: Height is 5 5/8" to the top of the handle and spout and diameter is about 4 1/2". The length from handle to spout is 6 1/8".
Condition: Good.there is some restoration to the spout as pictured but not noticeable on display. Otherwise, there are no chips or cracks and the glaze is smooth and unworn. The print is clear with hardly any wear to the lustre trim.
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.
