Description:

A large earthenware punch pot printed in blue in an unidentified landscape pattern and a floral border.  Of interest, in addition to its size, is the use of a small pattern that is repeated six or more times in order to cover the entire body of the pot.  It appears that the maker chose to use a pattern originally made for a smaller item instead of engraving a new pattern appropriately sized for this large pot.   Also of interest is the dated and monogrammed metal repair to the spout (see the close-up below).
