RARE! Antique Blue Transferware English Majolica Ewer with Girl & Dog Flying Kite
Majolica Ewer with Transfer Printed Scene
This is a really unusual and beautiful find. The ewer / pitcher is majolica in an iridescent peacock green blue color with embossed cream scrolling and pink floral detailing which frames a precious Victorian scene of a little girl and her dog. She appears to be holding a string, I presume to a kite, as she is looking up towards the sky as here terrier runs along side her. Impressed and printed numbers on bottom as shown.
Measures: Appx. 9" tall
Condition: Excellent, no chips, cracks, repairs
