This gorgeous Lenox Belleek china-painted decorated pitcher stands 6" high by 7" across the handle by 5.75" in diameter. It has a simple form with a wide mouth and side handle. It is glazed in a white translucent porcelain glaze and decorated with a distinctly nice Arts & Crafts stylized design, simple, yet elegant in its presentation. The mark dates this pitcher to circa 1889-1906. Lenox sold their white porcelain ware to china-painters at the turn of the last century, and beyond. Many women, mostly homemakers, were buying items to decorate in women's groups, or simply to work on at home in their leisure time. Some pieces are very ornate, some pretty, pretty decorative objects, such as this one. Oftentimes, the women would initial their work, but there are no marks, except for the Lenox mark on this pitcher. This impressive pitcher is marked with the Lenox Belleek palette logo, in green on the bottom. It is in factory original condition, no apologies. Any shadow marks are from camera glare, this china-painted pitcher makes a simply stunning presentation!
