I bought this pitcher because I thought it was just the coolest thing ever! It looks icy and cool on a summer’s day. It totally reminds me of the Yountville Diner in Napa Valley who’s walls are were filled with vintage pitchers (apparently, it’s something completely different now, which looks really intriguing, but I digress). It is unmarked, save for the number 730 on the bottom, so I have no idea of the manufacturer. I’ve not yet seen another like it. It’s in good condition with only a small chip at the bottom edge and some discoloration inside.
Imagine my surprise several years later (after the pitcher was snugly away in storage) when I ran across a tumbler and what I’m guessing is a creamer, with exactly the same glaze!! I’ve forgotten if I actually found them in Germany, or if they were from a flea market visit during one of our trips home. I suspect the latter. Anyway, the pieces are finally together, and YES, they do match! The tumbler and creamer do little to solve the mystery of their origins though. They have a sort of flying W on their undersides. The two smaller pieces are in very good condition.
I’m starting to have second thoughts about selling this set, so please take it off my hands for $50 before I change my mind.
Tomorrow should be another small “set.”
