Could you please tell me about this darling pitcher I got from my mother. It has a little monkey in a dress on the back!
Thank you very much!
The item in the photo is a Montmartre teapot without its cover. Montmartre is one of ten Red Wing patterns made in the Futura shape. Montmartre was made for two years, 1957-1958, and the whimsical design is popular with collectors today. A Montmartre brochure described the scene as being from”sidewalks of Paree” and called the design “a light-hearted romance captured in gay colors of melon, warm brown and bright mustard” on a white background. A Montmartre teapot complete with cover and in excellent condition is worth $75-100. Without a cover the value drops by 40-60%.
