A very nice example of Jasperware in the form of a pitcher. Golf scenes are depicted on two sides. Difficult to put an exact age on this piece, but it appears to be from the late 19th century or early 20th century.
Jasperware is a type of fine-grained, unglazed stoneware introduced by the English potter Josiah Wedgwood in 1775 as the result of a long series of experiments aimed at discovering the techniques of porcelain manufacture. Its name derives from the fact that it resembles the natural stone jasper in its hardness.
The pitcher stands 3 1/2" tall and is 2 1/2" across the base. There is a small chip out of the rim, otherwise very good condition.
