Vintage W S George China WATER PITCHER Derwood IVORY

Item Description

An estate sale find ~ this is a lovely water pitcher by
W. S. George ~ as stamped on the bottom along with the words Derwood Ivory 137
This pitcher has a wide lip and measures approximately 7.5 inches tall and is just as wide at its widest point towards the bottom. It probably has a depth to hold liquid of about 6.5 inches and it has a top opening of about 4.5 inches.
T is a five inch handle on the side ~which has a little bit of the gold trim faded ~ probably from being held over the years.
T is some slight crazing on the very bottom and one more prominent craze line on the one side of the pitcher. None of these feel like they go all the way through and so I think it should hold water well. The craze line, also, since the vase/pitcher is light in color isn't very noticeable unless you're looking at it closely. Otherwise, it's overall appearance is very good.
T is a flowered band around the top and each side of the band features a colorful peacock bird.
As the name denotes, the main color is ivory and t is some gold trim around the top.
This would look good on a washstand with a basin or even used as a vase with some pretty flowers in it.
I have no idea of the age & couldn't find the actual pattern in my research, but I believe it either dates vintage to antique ~ perhaps from the early 1920s to about 1940.
