This is a lovely Austrian handpainted Cider Pitcher. The water lily is one of my favorite patterns! The pitcher looks like a lovely water color painting. The background colors are shades of green and blue with large open water lilys on the front and closed lilys with the large leaves on the back. It measures 6" high x 8" wide and it is in excellent condition. It's hard to believe it is as old as it is! On the bottom there is a green lable with markings and Austria. There is also a sticker with the following description: Circa 1890 HP Austria Cider Pitcher-artist initial "MKS" porcelain importers marking. I have recently inherited a family porcelain collection and due to space limitations and medical bills I am selling some of the pieces. I am not an expert, just a lover of pretty porcelain pieces, so please review the photographs and ask any questions you may have. Thanks for looking.
