Charming Antique Blue and White French Pitcher from Onnaing in 'Flora' pattern
Very similar to another little picher we recently had in our shop, we found this one at a recent antiques fair.
These little pitchers always came with a basin which they sat in until the morning when water was poured from the pitcher into the basin for washing ones face. It is rare to fine a complete set...the basins must have slipped from many a pair of hands but the little pitchers have survived in goodly numbers...perhaps because they had a sturdy handle. We see these 'transferware' pitchers in blue and white most often, but one does see them in green, shades of rose, and more rarely in brown or lavender
In a classic French shape of the turn of the century, this piece carries a mark used by its maker, Onnaing.
The actual pattern name is 'Flora',
a lovely pattern of blue flowers on a creamy white porcelain.
This piece is in fine condition, with no cracks or chips but with a few minor discorations here and there that reveal is age and use, giving it a perfect 'shabby' patina.
This pitcher measures 6 inches high, 8 1/2 inches across.
A charming 'old-fashioned' piece, perfect for a bouquet of fat, old fashioned roses next to the basin in the bathroom or by the bedside in the guestroom....'So French.'
