My wife in particular has been after one of these since since she first laid eyes upon one. With the help of a very good friend, we were finally able to acquire one of the proper vintage (ca 1880-1900). It is in impeccable condition and is the absolute neatest thing I have ever seen, I think. I never realized quite how tall they were until it was in my case either. I need to rinse it out and put it to use one night soon. The hole in the beak is about the size of a Q-tip's shaft, maybe a hair bigger. It should make for a very nice drip.

Sweet. That's always been my favorite design as well.  Probably because it reminds me so much of Arthur Rackham's work, of which I've always been a fan.

The marabou looks great! The hole in the beak is maybe even smaller than the mouth of the Fée Verte pitcher.

Lovely pitcher, and in such wonderful condition!

You'd better duck after a remark like that.
