You know how it is when you are packing for a move...and you come across a box that was not unpacked from a previous move? This is how I re-discovered a real treasure from my farmhouse.
The photo doesn't do it justice. The art nouveau majolica pitcher has a very shiny glaze. Each petal, flower, and stem are raised.
Are you surprised at the name? Or, had you already guessed it was a piece of Frie Onnaing?
If my source information is correct, it is dated between 1850-1899.
The inside is a lovely shade of light burgundy.
The pitcher is now traveling to Meggie's Country Cottage.
