This is the small size Myott pinch jug, a line originally created to serve as advertizing pieces for the pottery, but later produced as regular pottery items. The necks and rims were pressed inward to create an elongated spout in place of a round neck and rim. The piece we’re offering here was sponge painted in light brown and then over-painted with bright yellow and green flowers with orange centers around the bulbous lower portion of the pitcher. The rim and handle are green. The effect is warm and earthy.
Measures 6 ¾” tall x about 5” spout to handle end x 6 ¼” wide at widest point. Marked on bottom with gold printed Myott mark, a crown over Myott, Son & Co. / Made in England / Hand Painted over the item number, H793, all under the glaze. Also marked overglaze with Made in England in russet. Condition is excellent with no cracks, chips, scratches or crazing. There is very little paint loss.
The Myott Pottery was built in 1901 on the site of the former Brownfield Pottery at Cobridge, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire (The Potteries online). The Art Deco style jugs and vases in bright, assertive colors and unusual geometric shapes for which the firm is famous, were made there during the 1930s.
