Please Note: I am not an expert on anything I see, I know a bit , but I assume you know more than me. I describe things as I see them. Please ask questions.My items are looked at carefully under magnifying lights by another person as well as myself. We are confident that when we send these items out to you they are just as we described. I would suggest when they are removed from packaging, that it is done carefully as not to damage the items. Some things are cleaned, but if they are real antique and I'm not sure what to use on them as far as chemicals go, I will leave that up to the buyer..Please know that I would not send anything out dirty if I thought soap and water were ok to use without causing rust or water spots. Just as I'm not responsible for broken items in shipping, I'm not resposible for an item that has more damage than when it left me. EVERYTHING is sold AS IS I acquired this water pitcher at an estate auction. This is an very nice pottery pitcher. Measures 8 inches from the top to the bottom and 6 3/8 across the bottom. It is embossed with an American Indian on one side with teepee's and trees decorating the rest of the pitcher. The handle has a indian chief head at the very top. This is w the only flaw is on this pitcher. T is a small chip halfway on the bob on his head. Chip appears blue colored. Chip measures 1/8 inch. T are no markings on this pitcher.
