Antique 19th Century Cobalt Decorated Relief Portrait Stoneware Pitcher


Beautiful, American stoneware pitcher with double relief portraits accentuated in cobalt glaze. Dating back to the late 1800s, this piece is very detailed with 2 different country scenes. It has a rectangular applied handle with a tree bark-like texture. It’s in overall nice shape and displays nicely, though it does have a few signs of age. There is some chipping on the spout from past use as well as a tight, 2 inch hairline behind where the top of the handle mounts. It is not structurally significant. It measures about 7 3/4” high with a base diameter of about 5 7/8 inches. It’s a rugged, solid piece of salt-glaze pottery that will compliment any collection.
