Hi Renae,

Wow, you have a beautiful piece of art!  Absolutely, wonderful and with a colorful history too!

Your 1893 World's Columbian Exposition iron cast pitcher is worth between $1200-1500 dollars.  However, its so rare that I haven't seen this piece or a similar one go up for sale, so the price is just an estimate.  In an auction, with the right set of buyers bidding, it could go up much higher.

Thanks for sharing.
