Made in Italy, the Lenox Butler's Pantry Earthenware line features ivory ceramic pieces with sculptural patterning and cream-colored accents. They are perfect for setting an elegant table, hosting a holiday party, or dressing up a daily meal. To protect against chipping and cracking, Earthenware pieces should not be put in the oven or microwave. The line is covered by Lenox's lifetime replacement policy.
Reminiscent of a Grecian design, this large-handled Earthenware pitcher features an ivory body with a smooth interior and wide vertical fluting on the outside. The lip and foot wear a slightly darker, cream-colored bead design. Ample in size, the smooth handle finishes in a scroll at either end and bears a simple leaf pattern in cream glaze. Substantial in heft, the piece is easy to pour from, thanks to its wide curved spout, and measures 10-1/2 by 9 by 6 inches. Lenox recommends hand washing this piece. Butler's Pantry Earthenware designs are available in additional serving pieces and dining sets. --Emily Bedard
