This pitcher has been in my stepfathers family for many years....my mother remarried late in life and this was in his family....his first wife collected many fine antiques and collectables....I fell heir to them after he passed away as his family were not interested in keeping anything....I have enjoyed this lovely old pitcher and used it as a centerpiece on our dining room table with flowers....it is between 90 and 100 years old at least and in wonderful condition...the soft green with the violet, purple and pink orchids is a striking color combination....it is large also and an unusual shape....I just put this in my store for sale as well as several other pieces and will be adding more later....I put it up for sale reluctantly..
I think having these type pieces in our homes makes warmth that you don't get with modern decorating...history and romance.....
