Theodore Deck Iznik Persian Style Pottery Jug Pitcher

$3,000.00
Quantity available: 1

This is a delightful ceramic pitcher, circa 1870, featuring polychrome floral decoration on a white ground in the Persian Iznik style, by Theodore Deck (1823-1891), who The Metropolitan Museum of Art has declared to be "the most esteemed ceramic artist in France in the late nineteenth century."

It measures 8 in (20.3 cm) tall and carries the familiar stamped mark, TH DECK, plus a four digit number in black. Condition is very good.  There is a faint hairline running down vertically from the rim, and some tiny chips and scratches, consistent with age.
