This form of leaf-molded jug with the spout in the form of a head and a double-scrolling handle was extremely popular. Most of the time, as here, they were decorated with blue transfer prints. This one, however, bears prints of a passion flower on one side and a carnation on the other. Each of these prints often appears alongside the Natural Sprays pattern, but hardly ever are they together on the same piece. This would make a lovely addition to a cabinet of antique Worcester blue and white porcelain. This pitcher is nine inches high and has one small (one-eighth inch) restored chip on the side of the spout.
A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
