Fantastic and rare David Auld burled wood carved pitcher, made in Haiti around the 1970s. This is actually a functional pitcher as well as a beautiful decorative object - I believe that the pieces underwent a proprietary treatment in order to render them washable and usable. Auld, a musician who moved to Haiti, produced these pieces in the 1970s and up.. believe that the family still makes wooden pieces. Holloware like these pitchers are harder to come across, as they require a lot more labor to produce. Original foil sticker on bottom reading "Hand crafted in Haiti by Auld".
In good vintage condition with no cracks or chips. Sticker has wear on bottom, which also has light scuffing. There are 2-3 very slight dings to the finish on the rim, but not too noticeable - see the 5th and 6th photos. Someone had used this pitcher as a pen container, and there are some ink marks to the interior bottom - see the last photo. We did try to remove some of the ink, and were somewhat successful. Believe that more would come off.
Measures about 4 1/2" tallest, spout to handle is 6".
