The Dunham 2 Quart Water Pitcher is a classic mid-19th century design. Dunham was active in Westbrook, Maine from 1837-1861 and was a fine craftsmen. Several firms produced lidded and unlidded pitchers in this style. Capacities varied from 1.5 quart up to one gallon.

I owned and copied a Dunham pitcher several years ago. Unlike the original whose body is made from multiple castings, our body is made from a single piece which means it will never leak. The pitcher pours beautifully and has graceful lines. Makes a great gift!
