This wood pitcher has three trim bands around the base. Each band consists of two smaller joined bands. The middle of the three bands is loose. The base is slightly jagged as it is comprised of a series of triangles. The handle has a long, rectangular shape with a circular cutout to place one's fingers. There is some cracking around this cutout. A wooden peg joins the handle to the movable lid. The attached lid covers the opening of the pitcher as well as its pointed spout.
Made in Greece and was used as a pitcher. At the time of the object's accession, the pitcher was said to be roughly 75 years old. It is unknown when the Kouimelis family moved to America.
