Antique Ironstone Pitcher - Large, White - Mellor & Co.


Large antique ironstone pitcher with simple, clean lines making it an elegant classic. Ironstone pitchers were found in almost every farmhouse or French country kitchen sitting on tables, shelves, counters, in display cabinets or as part of a collection. This one is heavy and has a still bright finish and is in lovely condition. There is some faint all-over crazing and one small hairline near the handle from the top rim down about 1 1/2 “ which does go all the way through. There are some rough spots in the glaze on the handle which cannot be seen, only felt. There are two chips on the underneath rim of the base. There is also what "may" be a hairline on the inside of the spout - it may be a shadow. It is difficult to tell (Please see pictures). Since this piece is an antique, certain wear is to be expected. None of this affects its ability to hold liquids.

This lovely beauty features a backstamp on the base with the Royal Arms crest, a lion and unicorn, and reads "Mellor & Co.”. It would be a lovely addition to any ironstone collection, pair it with other whites or let it shine on its own being the lovely antique treasure that it is.

The pitcher measures 11 1/2 inches tall to the top of the spout, its top opening is approximately 6 inches across and it sits on a 4 1/2 inch round base.
