Per Your Request


Here's the vintage pitcher that I picked up at Artichoke Annie's Antique Mall.  Slightly Russell Wright looking, except for that handle,  I think.  No markings.  No pedigree.  (Artichoke Annie's?  Really, is she kidding?)  Feeling a little superior?  Passed up were a Elsa Schiaparelli cloche in its original box for $30 and a vintage leather riding hat box designed to hold two hats.

Thanks for sharing. It's terrific. That's the color.

Very fine lines, you find the best pieces, I don't know if I could have passed up the cloche!

Score! I love old pitchers, especially ones in that green color.

Why on earth would you pass up on a vintage cloche and leather riding hat box?

What a lovely find. It has wonderful lines, and such a gorgeous color too. Nicely done.

Many years ago I viewed an exploration of the color celadon at the Hirschorn Museum in Washington, D.C. Huge canvases of different shades of green--it is a mystical color.

I am still pining away for that leather riding hat nirvana. The stitching. The tabs. The pink interior. The price- oh darn. They knew what they had. Anyhoo- still happy with my church pew at the start of Holy Week. Quite appropriate as I have so many sins to be absolved of....

I am into "jugs" as I call them and my 'Studioware' collection from England was my version of your beloved Russell Wright!
the same muted colours are evident...greys, greens and mushroomy pinks!
Must blog mine!

Wow, I have the exact pitcher, but in a bone-yellow color. It belonged to my grandmother, who lived her entire life in the south Alabama/Florida panhandle area. Wish I knew more about it.

It is a "La Solana" pitcher.
