Collar decorated with brushed cobalt swags. Additional cobalt highlights to handle terminals. Outstanding size and finely-executed form, including a rounded molding at the base of the collar and tooled line below rim. One of the finest miniature Remmey pitchers we have seen.

Excellent, essentially as-made condition with a raised, glazed-over iron spot on handle, and a dry area on side of pitcher, created when the piece was fired in the kiln on its side. H 4".
