Continuously produced in England since 1816, the Blue Italian pattern from Spode will easily find a home on a casual or more formal table. Utilizing an underglaze printing process created by Josiah Spode and still employed today, varying shades of blue and white make up the lovely design, adding a 3-dimensional depth to each piece.
Measuring 5 inches wide and 8 inches from handle to spout, this Blue Italian 2-quart Liverpool jug stands 7-1/2 inches high and is the perfect vessel to serve water, iced tea, or lemonade for the entire table. Based upon a late 17th Century drawing, the central design depicts classic Italian ruins in a pastoral setting and decorates the rounded bowl of the pitcher. An 18th Century Chinese-inspired floral motif adorns the lip of the vessel as well as the comfortably rounded handle. Crafted from Spode's high-quality earthenware, known as Imperialware, this jug can safely be placed in the microwave or dishwasher. --Lea Werbel
