Majolica or Faience Jug, 1870's-80's
The clean white glaze, along with the bright turquoise blue and apple green enamel decoration, gives this piece a freshness that distinguishes it from the rich earth and jewel tones of most majolica. Displays beautifully on its own, or lovely filled with flowers and used as a vase.
Dimensions: Height 8", Body 5 1/2" diameter, width 6 1/2" including handle.
Condition: Very good. There is a small cavity in the base that appears to be from the manufacture, not subsequent damage (see photos 8 & 9). A 1/16" spot of enamel has flaked off one of the leaves near the handle (see photo 5). There is wear to the gilding at the rim, especially near the spout. Otherwise no cracks, chips, flakes or repairs.
