Here is a beautiful Tintern Blue transfer ware jug by Alfred Meakin. The pattern, Tintern, is a pastoral scenic transfer ware pattern of Tintern Village with the famed ruins of the 12th Century Tintern Abbey pictured in the background across the water. A shepherd watches his peaceful sheep in the foreground while the smoke rises welcomingly from the chimney at home.
This lovely blue transfer ware pitcher measures 5-1/2 inches tall and 4-1/4 inches in diameter.
The large blue shield backstamp reads "Alfred Meakin England (script) A hand engraved pattern applied under the glaze permanent and acid resisting colour." "Tintern" is printed above the shield. There is also a barely discernable incised number under the backstamp.
Made by Meakin circa 1930-1960, there is a one-inch hairline crack in the glaze on the inside that does not go through. There is also some staining inside the jug.
