966 American Belleek Nautilus Pitcher, ca. 1892-1901, Willets Manufacturing Co., Trenton, New Jersey, probably designed by Walter Scott Lenox (1859-1920), crested with a figural putto holding the ribbon handle. h. 9-1/2", w. 8-1/2", d. 2-3/4" Literature: Alice Cooney Frelinghuysen, American Porcelain, 1770-1920 (New York: Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1989), p. 202. Notes: This nautilus-form jug is an iconic example of the art of porcelain in the United States in the late 19th century. Probably designed by Walter Scott Lenox (head designer at Willets and later founder of Lenox Porcelain). There are examples in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York (where one is on display in the American Wing) and the Newark Museum in New Jersey. The Newark pitcher has been exhibited a number of times, including the current "Hot, Hotter, Hottest: 300 Years of Jersey Ceramics" at the Newark Museum, and "19th Century America", an exhibit held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Like this pitcher, neither the New York nor Newark examples are signed, and the dimensions of this lot match the Newark pitcher.
Estimate: 900 - 1200
