English Stoneware Jug, Pewter Lid, c. 1861
A wonderful English stoneware jug with stalks of wheat and wheat leaves covering the body of the pitcher. This pitcher has a pewter flip lid. This jug measures 8 1/2 inches high. There was confusion with two of the English views of this pattern. Each jug lists the pattern as “Barley”. The molded design is indeed wheat but the named wrongly and called “Barley”.
On this jug and under then outside the spout there is a the spray of wheat pointing away. Condition; Very good. There is a s spider style of a tight crack seen under the base but does not go though. The hinged lid had been bent at one time and needs to be pressed tighter onto the lid rim. Maker: James Dudson, c. 1861
