New Majolica PitchersBy Mark Chervenka
Six new majolica pitchers were introduced by a New York based importer. They range in height from 5-6″ and are decorated in period colors of bright blue, green, mauve, rose and yellows. Like original Victorian majolica, patterns of the new are also based on motifs from nature. These include a heron, flowers, ferns and snail shells. New pieces are slip cast and have holes on the inside where handles join the pitcher.
