Description

The pitcher is 6.75 inches tall. The opening on top is 3.75 x 3 inches and the base is 3.25 inches in diameter. A cocker spaniel is hanging is paws over the side of a basket. There is crazing on the bottom and a small crack and some chipping around the top rim.

Provenance

It belonged to my mother for many years. Wondering if it is a Wedgwood Majolic piece?

What does this mean?

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
For an example of what this was probably supposed to be, see this link (https://www.chairish.com/product/2103068/english-majolica-pewter-cavalier-spaniel-in-basket-syrup-pitcher-1881) but it lacks the vibrant glaze as well as pewter mounts so I'm calling it just a pitcher rather than a syrup pitcher. Yours is much lower in value being more plain (and the price on Chairish is a retail price, Mearto's are fair-market for auction purposes).
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

An Enoch Wedgwood English earthenware pitcher
In the form of a Cavalier Spaniel in a basket, circa 1877
With brown drip-glaze at the top, raised English registry mark underneath.
6 3/4 inches tall
CONDITION: with minor chips, pitting and some losses throughout. May be lacking lid fittings.
PROVENANCE: inherited
$100-150*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.
