Description

The white coffee pot-like pitcher is for milk. The bottom is a larger diameter than the top. It has a curved spout and loop handle. A domed lid with a small knob is hinged above the handle. There is a dark blue rim on the vessel, otherwise, it is undecorated.

It was used for serving hot milk.
