Blue Onion Wine Pitcher

This is a hard to find wine pitcher (off course it can be used for any other liquid as well) made by Meissen in the mid 19th century. An unusual shape with a zinc lid on the main opening as well as a small lid on the spout. A nice looking piece! It is decorated with their famous blue onion design without the swords in the stalk part so a nice early version. A bit of blue trim to the handle as well. The thumb rest of the large lid has a decorative design to it. The pitcher is in perfect condition. The only issue is that the lid does not sit perfectly flat on the top opening. It displays perfectly and I am just being overly picky as always. The entire peice including the thumb rest is 12.5 inches tall, 8.25 inches from handle to spout and 6 inches in diameter. So rather large! The piece is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark as well as the usual impressed numbers and a blue painter's mark. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $749
