|The colors on this jug or pitcher start at the top with a mauve, then merge into a yellow-gold followed by green as you go toward the base. It has an applied handle with the same shading. It stands 6-1/2" tall, with a base diameter of 3-1/4" and is 3-3/4" across the top, including the spout. On the bottom is incised Rd 290480, and the bottom rim shows good wear indicating age. I do not know the maker, and I would estimate the age to be within the first two decades of the 20th century. On the back are some marks under the glaze that might have happened in the working of the clay, and the surface of the body is finely crazed. I can see no chips or cracks. This would be a good container for cut flowers or a silk arrangement.|
