Description: Old vintage or antique figural dragon or griffin handle Art Pottery Ewer:
This lovely old decorative porcelain ewer pitcher has a griffin or dragon handle that is quite impressive! It is noted in an antique catalogue clipping that I found with it when I purchased it at an antique store. I will also include this which is the actual page I scanned from the 1991 Antiques and Collecting Magazine when it is shipped to the buyer.
Colors: Hand painted under glaze a floral design with two butterflies, in deep blue, dusty rose,deep & light green. The dragon or griffin is walnut brown with yellow ochre coloring. There is gilt trim that is worn but still visable outlining certain parts of the design. The color appears a little lighter than in actuality in the outside pics.
Condition: Excellent condition; without chips, cracks, damage or crazing or repair that I could find with close scrutiny.
Maker: This ewer is marked with a number and initials on the underside. I think it reads an incised number of 817, with initials possibly of T L below that, but I am unsure of this part. Also, in dark green paint paint there is writing of the number of 80 or 08 & something illegible below that that is like a couple of illegible letters. I have a page clipping I scanned from an the Antiques and Collecting Magazine, June 1991 edition, page, 19 authorizing this piece according to Donald M Penrose with a list of antiquities & vintage glass and porcelain for sale.
It has a picture of this style ewer (as you can see in my scans; of the page itself, and then a close-up) with a description of the item as published in that magazine on that page. See copy of page exercerpt here. It is shown with another paint theme on the ewer but it is the same ewer but a little smaller. List value then was $150.00 for that particular piece.
Measurement\/weight: It is 8 " in height & about 6 1\/4" at the widest from the griffin\/dragon belly across.
