This ironstone pottery pitcher is from Mason & Ashworth Bros., Hanley, Staffordshire, England, (part of the Wedgwood group) and could be as old as 1820. The pattern is called "Mandarin" and shows Oriental influence. There is a snake head on the handle. The decoration is a transfer underglaze with additional colors added by hand after firing. There is gold trim which is in excellent condition. This pitcher is in excellent original condition with no discernible signs of usage, although there is some wear on the bottom to testify to its age. The pitcher measures 6" tall, 7" wide and is 4 1/2" in diameter (it is octagonal shaped).
