PITCHERS.
ANY OF THE AMERICAN views pro-
duced by old English potters are found on
pitchers only, while others occur on tea-
pots, bowls and mugs. A large number of
these prints were also placed on plates and
platters. This somewhat indiscriminate
use of entire engravings, or portions of
the same, renders the work of classifica-
tion somewhat difficult.
For the sake of convenience in catalog-
ing or describing, pitchers may be ar-
ranged in groups, according to form. The
variations in shape are so numerous, how-
ever, that we shall only attempt to classify them according to
well-marked characteristics. By the process of elimination
the number may be reduced to eight distinct types, and under
these all modifications may be placed.
Many of the designs previously listed, as occurring on plates
and other pieces, are also found on pitchers. They are not
repeated in the following list.
