Pitcher. Artist: Modeled by William Bromley. Culture: American. Designer: Designed by Walter Scott Lenox. Dimensions: H. 9 1/8 in. (23.2 cm). Maker: Willets Manufacturing Company (1879-1908). Date: 1887-93. In 1884, Walter Scott Lenox left Ott and Brewer to work for Willets, a rival firm; the British craftsman William Bromley Jr. had done the same by 1887. Bromley's father developed Belleek while working in Ireland, and the family brought the coveted recipe to the United States. The technical expertise of such artisans ensured the commercial success of the firms that employed them. This pitcher, a version of the first known dated example of Willets Belleek, descended in the Willets family.
