Pretty White Pitcher
Great Condition
Marked: "Dresden
Hotel China Warranted"
[mark not incised; rather, stamped in black] Pretty shape
Nice complete glaze coverage
Neat handle!
T are various marks/spots on
the pitcher, incl. one that seems
"rusty" - leading me to wonder if
this could be ironstone ... ?
T is a mark just below one area of
the inside spout rim [see photos] which
is partially glazed, so it may be a
defect dating back to manufacturing.
T are 3 items that look like
"potter's cracks" because they
have soft edges and the glaze
covers or partially fills them in.
[see photos]
The applied handle has what appear
to be cracks on one side [see photos],
but they are covered by glaze so
I suspect that again, these have been
present since this pitcher was made.
Height: 6-1/2" Base rim diameter: 5" Top rim diameter: 4-1/2"
Top rim diam. edge of handle
to tip of spout: ~ 7-1/4" Weight: 2 lbs. 6.5 oz.
The pitcher sits solidly on its base, with
only the slightest rocking when tested.
The base rim also has thin glaze
coverage & one shallow chip
(which also has some glaze coverage,
so it was probably present
since the date of manufacturing).
