This view is found on pitchers 7.5 and 9 inches in height, with Esplanade and Castle Garden, New York on the reverse.  It was also printed on platters measuring 17, 16.25, and 14 inches, on a soup tureen undertray, and on the cover for a soup tureen.  There are indentations from rim to base on either side of the spout and handle of the pitcher, giving it a sort of melon shape.
