Casual Entertaining in American Folk Art Style. Living on Virginia’s Eastern Shore has inspired folk artist José Dovis to design this handmade Blue Crab Stoneware Pitcher in the style of 18th-century American tavern crockery. Hand-painted with blue crabs and roping accents, this one-of-a-kind crab pickin’ essential is perfect for almost any family occasion. Food, dishwasher and microwave safe. 9"h.; 48 oz.
America’s largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay, nurtures more than 300 aquatic creatures, including the delectable blue crab. Harvested by the bushel and served steamed and spiced by the dozen, crab feasts (or pickin’s) are the pinnacle of gustatory pleasure for coastal residents of Maryland and Virginia. Recreate that sense of endless summer with this delectable shore-inspired collection, each inspired by holdings in our National Museum of American History’s costume collection or Division of Domestic Life.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
