English Transfer Ware Jug
A very nice, English Jug in a purple color. The pattern is a ‘sheet’ pattern where the transfer would be wrapped around without cutting the transfer paper. This design was also continually applied over the rim. Measurements: 6 1/4 inches high and from handle to spout rum, 8 inches wide.
The clay color may have been this tan color from the beginning as it is the color on the underside of the base. The jug is really very charming and I have not found any cracks or chips to the body or handle for this pitcher. C.1850.
