RARE! Antique Blue Transferware English Majolica Ewer with Girl & Dog Flying Kite


Brand Unknown

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. 

Circa 1850-1900

Measures: Appx. 9" tall

Condition:  Excellent, no chips, cracks, repairs
