This is a lovely deep yellow ginger jar in Aynsley’s Orchard Gold pattern, signed D. Jones. The gorgeous fruit, hazelnuts and berries on the rich yellow ground are done in the excellent transfer work used for Orchard Gold pieces made after 1960. All of this superior quality work was done using photographs of Doris Jones’s hand painted pieces from years past. The six-sided jar with lid measures 9 ½” tall x 4 ½” at shoulder x 2 7/8” at foot. Lid is about 2 ¾” tall with ¾” lip. Little artichoke finial and all edges trimmed in gold.
Mark on underside in green over the glaze, Crown with date/Banner with Aynsley/ Made in England/Fine English/Bone China, used from 1972 (Artifact Free Encyclopedia). Also bears Aynsley oval gold and blue foil sticker. Condition is excellent with no chips, scratches, cracks or crazing.
