Wilton Armetale flat-sided Pewter beverage pitcher with raised Kenya pattern - measures 8-1/2 inches at highest point.In 1992, Wilton Armetale launched a licensing program with and for CARE, the international relief agency. The program grew for CARE and became "Made with CARE". The designs were named for countries in Africa w CARE was operating at the time (Chad, Kenya, Mali, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda and Zambia). The decorative rim designs are derived from traditional tribal art displayed originally on canoes, houses, fabrics, shields, woven food warmer mats and other objects all with a distinctly African origin and were designed as collaborative effort of the Wilton Armetale Art Department and CARE. The various designs were adapted to a variety of shapes including pitchers , trivets, bowls, casseroles, chip & dip servers, trays and wine bottle coasters totaling over 30 pieces . They are equally at home in Contemporary, Traditional, Country, Primitive, Tribal or Artistic environments. A significant portion of the sales of each piece benefited CARE in its various programs throughout the world and especially a women's health clinic in rural Sudan which was visited by Mr. Richard Wilton in 1992. Pitcher is engraved: RWP The Wilton Co . Metal is non-toxic - safe for cooking and eating Withstands temperatures up to 1000 degrees fahrenheit Retains cold as well as it hold heat
Pitcher appears to have been used and may have some oxidation but is in excellent overall condition. (If interested, please request pictures of inside). I believe this is a rare pattern - great collector's item.
