A fine piece of Wedgwood souvenir ware, circa 1900. Around this time, Wedgewood made quantities of small pieces of black basalt decorated with hand-enameled printed transfers of the coats of arms of various cities, towns and countries.
This example is a small Upright shape jug with the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom on the side.
The pitcher is 4" tall, 3.5" from handle to spout and 2.5" in diameter at the bottom.
Condition: as new, no wear or damage. There are popped bubbles in the enamel, but that's a manufacturing issue.
Mark: impressed WEDGWOOD and ENGLAND marks, which dates this piece to 1890-1910. Hand-painted C3455 in red.
