This is an antique well-crafted Gustavsberg art pottery pitcher. It is green with a pewter lid and stands about 10.5 inches tall. It has heraldic heads as a motif, and it was most likely made before 1900. The 87 mark on the base may very well stand for 1887. Gustavsberg made household and decorative pieces like this principally between 1825 and 1920.

In terms of condition, the lid has some slight beds, and has an old repair at the hinge. The high spots of the heads-the nose and top of the helmet-- have small dings, and you can see fine crazing inside. Otherwise the piece is undamaged, with no cracks, and when you tap the center of the base, it sounds correct.

If you collect old Gustavsberg or antiques from Sweden, this a hard to find piece that displays well, and you will appreciate owning it.
