Offered is a transferprinted pearlware pitcher in a very early 19th century form with an all-over blue pattern of flowers. The light weight and blue pearlware glaze indicate an approximate date of 1815 to 1825. On the bottom is the name of a possible manufacturer, Le.Ve.S. Malks. Below that is the term, Magazinier at Brussels. This is a little bit of a mystery because I am not familiar with the mark or any such maker and it suggests that the item may be from continental europe. All indications are that it is definitely an early pearlware piece.
Dimensions: Height is 5 1/2" to the top of the handle and 5" to the top of the spout. Length is 4 3/4" from handle to spout and diameter of the base is 2 5/8".
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips, cracks or repairs. The glaze is smooth and unworn, and the transfer print is clear and sharp with good color.
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.
