You'd be forgiven if you think this pitcher is Italian; its hand-painted Harlequin dress looks so much like the costume of Arlechino, one of the character clowns of the Italian Commedia dell'Arte. No, it's German, made by Übelacker in the 1950's. What is clear is the pitcher's strong Springtime sensibility. Wouldn't it be nice to be greeted each morning by this sunny, cheerful creamer?

More Springtime Suggestions tomorrow and in the days to come.
