I love the tall slender graceful form of this antique white ironstone pitcher. The maker is Wedgwood & Co. The base has a beautiful, clearly printed, black transfer mark reading Royal Ironstone China Wedgwood & Co. The embossed floral pattern is simply gorgeous, the way it drapes so naturally across the pitcher.
At first I thought the flowers were lily of the valley, but I found an article printed in The White Ironstone China Association news letter explaining the difference between the two patterns. It seems when the flowers are depicted in profile, they are lily of the valley. When they are depicted with open ends, as on this pitcher, they are considered hyacinth. The pitcher is in excellent condition.There are no chips or cracks, nor any crazing or discoloration. The height to the center of the spout is 12 3/4.
