Description Brownish pink coloured lustreware (earthenware) pitcher, with hand-painted pink blue and dark blue flowers with greenery. The underside of the pitcher does not have lustre, and is off-white in colour. There is no maker's mark. There is a horizontal incised-style ring above its rounded body before the neck. The handle has a couple of decorative molded protrusions. Copper lustre pitchers were primarily made in England. The original display card placed with it in 1957 said that it was English and a "Lustre Pitcher".
Makers mark None
Provenance Previously owned by Mrs. Reg Gill who resided at Owen Sound, Ontario in 1957. She did not provide any information about the original ownership and pottery origin of this pitcher. It likely was made in England in the 19th-century. She must have told the museum staff that it was English-made, as that information was on its first display card in 1957.
