  • Pattern:  Paul and Virginia
  • Vintage: 1971
  • Details:  This pitcher is not an original piece from the 1850's, those are mostly in museums, this was hand painted from a mold in 1971.  The mold however, is based on a very old pitcher from the United States Pottery Company (1852–58), pattern known as "Paul and Virginia", the original pitchers all had a solid color background with lots of stippling and the relief details were all in white.  Paul et Virginie (Paul and Virginia) is a romantic story written by Jacques-Henri Bernardin de St. Pierre in 1788, about two young people who grow up on a paradise island according to nature's law, we won't spoil it by telling you more, but it's worth reading.  We have been unable to find who sold these molds, but they were certainly made much later, for the masses to paint using their own interpretation for the piece.  The details on this pitcher are 3 dimensional and there's a  surprising amount of detail, really well done. This one is signed on the bottom by "D.J.S." and dated 5-71, we're guessing May of 1971.  Really great conversation piece, a very pretty pitcher with a great story.  Great Summer Tropical decor!
