There was quite a penchant for these relief molded pitchers (or jugs) during the mid-nineteenth century. They were known for their detailed molding, and this one is no exception. It features oak branches with leaves and acorns, and the handle is in the form of a realistically modeled branch.
Body is a warm light-gray stoneware, with glossier glaze on the interior.
Unmarked, except for a small impressed "X" which is probably a size number, but typical of the many stoneware jugs made in England during this period.
Size: Approximately 10" high.
Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks or repairs.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
