This charming little pitcher (approx 5 inches tall) bears the stamp of the Seamens Church Institute- an anchor leaning on the cross with a ship at sea in the background. The pitcher is a white with green decor.Extra green paint under the glaze and the bottom looks as if it was half painted over with black paint.Why? I do not have a clue-but the writing is mostly covered. This organization was founded in 1834 and is affiliated with the Episcopal Church,but serves all seamen.In 1898 a knitting project for Christmas scarves for mariners was established and is still in action today. This pitcher is too small to have been for bathing but might have been used in the cafeteria.The opening is approx 2inches wide with a 3inch span from spout to other edge.Please email with any ?'s.Thanks.
