Up for Auction is this great little Pitcher/Creamer that was found recently..It looks at first glance like Antique Chinese Porcelain made for the Western Market.. I believe it is Stoneware/Ceramic made to look like Chinese Import Porcelain..Appears to come from the period prior to Europe learning the art of making Porcelain and thus I believe it is from about that time period. I am not an expert and this is my opinion only..The piece certainly appears to have many years to it's age.. I am sure it is hand painted..Looks like early "Delft" ware..The base as you can see in photo shows many years of wear..The only indication of a maker's mark is the blue line on the base that looks like a bird in flight..T are a couple of dings or chips, very small, but t.T is a brown line on the side that looks like a crack in the glaze, but does not go through to the inside..T is cracking in the glaze as would be expected for this age..Pitcher measures about 3 1/4" tall, 2" across base & 3 3/4" from tip of spout to width of handle..

Any questions, please ask..Happy Bidding
