Description

One of the earliest body styles to be decorated with copper lustre motifs,  Classic Gothic is characterized by its octagonal shape.  Pitchers and teapots have bracket handles, while sugar and vegetable dishes have spiraled ear handles.

Classic Gothic can be distinguidhed from its cousin, Full Panelled Gothic, by the eight panels which extend downward to a deep indentation just above the base.
