Pitcher with a Single Handle

End of the 19th century – beginning of the 20th century

White/cream coloured paste, white slip, transparent glaze with underglaze brownish red, cobalt blue, turquoise, aubergine purple, and green decoration. Outlines are black. Spherical body, everted rim, thin cylindrical neck, single handle, and ring base. Large flowers with eight leaves are repeated on the body, placed in curved cartridges ending in palmettes. Between the palmettes there are vervain flowers placed on stems, as well as flowers with long leaves. Raised spots are added to the motifs at certain intervals. The rectangular handle, which curves outward at the bottom, features the same vervain flowers seen on the body.
