Vintage Thingies Thursday: Grammy's Rose Pitcher

I collect pitchers. This is my first Vintage Thingies Thursday post. This pitcher belonged to my paternal grandmother, Lena Rose McNeal Buzzell (1906-1972.) It is small, just the right size for serving as a creamer.
I got the pitcher after my grandfather, Chester, died in 1989. My mother cleaned out his house and gave it to me. At the time, I lived in a 100-plus year old house and kept the rose pitcher in a chimney cupboard. When we moved fourteen years ago to a new contemporary home, the chimney cupboard came with us along with its contents packed in towels in an ash laundry basket.
