    This is a small 5 1/4" tall ewer shaped pitcher. It is a crackle glazed vase. I found this at a thrift store. I love the hand painted singing bird perched on a pussy willow, flowers and butterflies. It is not marked on the bottom. However the close up picture may be a signature or part of the painting. Would like to know more if anyone has a guess or knows where this is made. I am guessing at Japanese, but I am reaching. Thank you

      I’ve never seen a Japanese piece with Pussy Willow on it, but I maybe be wrong. My guess would be Northern European, maybe German /Austrian, but i’m no expert

      The bird looks like a nightingale !! Great shaped jug:-)

      Thank you maryhi1956 and surfdub66 . I thought it could be a Royal Worcester piece. The reason I thought of Japanese is because of the butterflies. It does look like a nightingale. Also I was wondering if the painting of the bird and pussy willows were added later?
