The bottom of the spout sports a row of dots and a small label "Purest and Best", while the shoulder wears a garland of flowers. Strong mold lines and coloration. Stands 7 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A tiny pinhead-size nibble on two letters. That's it! No spout or base chips, hairlines, cracks, stains, or restoration.
