This pitcher/creamer is white pottery that appears to have been painted red and brown at some point as there are a couple of paint flecks on it. It is likely German, as my Grandmother collected German creamers and this came from her collection. It is approximately 3 1/2 " tall. It has no chips, cracks, fractures or fissures. It's a very pretty piece that features shells and coral in a raised pattern all around the front and back.
