Odd Fellows Creamware Pitcher Very Large England Circa 1850$1,640.00
This very large creamware pitcher is fully decorated with the imagery and symbols of the Odd Fellows (see images).
Odd Fellows promote philanthropy, the ethic of reciprocity, and charity.
At the front of the pitcher, we see a panel with the words “We are odd Fellows When we act and Do the thing which is Right.”
Around this panel are the words “How grand in Age How fair in Youth is Holly Friendship, Love and Truth.”
Above the panel is an open palm with a heart symbolic of charity given from the heart.
On both sides of the pitcher is the Odd Fellows motto, “Amicitia Amor et Veritas,”; which translates to Friendship, Love, and Truth.
The motto is seen together with an image of Lady Justice and an angel holding a budding branch. Lady Justice personifies morality in judicial systems. The budding branch symbolizes the idea that truth can “draw freshness and verdure” from the “most barren facts and common things in life” and give them life and interest.
Above all of this is a shining sun. As the sun shines on us all, it symbolizes impartiality in the benevolence of the Odd Fellows.
Dimensions: 9.75″ tall x 8.25″ diameter
Condition: An invisible restoration to the underside of the vase, only, and some scratching, particularly to the lustered leaves and the flowers and the lustered top edge.
