This is a pretty piece, possibly hand-made before the mid 1980s. It has a black satin finish inside and out. On the bottom is a "Made in" stamp, but I find the next word impossible to read. This pitchermeasures 8 1/4" tall and about 6" at its widest point.It has a few tiny scuff marks and on the inside bottom, some of the paint has worn off. I would advise only using this for decorative purposes.
