Art pottery pitcher
Decorated with applied handle by Susan S. Fracketon, 1894-1909
Stoneware with gray glaze
Stoneware pitcher is ovoid-shaped with an applied, curved handle and flared rim, pinched slightly to form a pouring spout. Pitcher has a gray glaze and blue painted decorations. There is a fret pattern around interior rim, and geometric motifs on the handle. The upper body has jack-in-the-pulpits alternating with tripart leaves, and both have straight stems that extend to the base. A maker's mark, "SF", is incised and painted blue on the underside.
Donated in 1958 by Frackelton's daughter, Gladys F. Seely. Milwaukee Art Museum exhibited the pitcher in 2001.
