We have a vintage pitcher with colonial men on either side. It is ceramic and measures about 8" in H from the top of the handle to the base x about 5 3/4" in W from the outer spout to the other side of the handle. It is about 5" in W on the lower design towards the bottom where the men's knees stand out. I'm not certain this is able to be actually used as a picher or not, I would say it would be better as design. There are 2 imperfections in the finish around the bottom 1 on either side - not that noticeable but outlined in my photo's with a blue line.
