A very decorative pitcher! The main part of the body is molded with overlapping cabbage leaves and the top rim has a band of molded dots and leaves. The spout of the jug is molded with the face of a bearded man. Around the top is a transfer-printed lozenge border. The printed images of a butterfly, grapes, apples and leaves and the main print of a parrot on a branch about to peck at some conveniently placed fruit are sharp and clear in Worcester's pleasant dark blue tint. The handle also has a blue design similar to a lambrequin border. It is seven and a half inches tall and in excellent display condition, though black light shows a tiny repair on the side of the spout and two repaired chips on the bottom rim, just under the fruit, all shown in the photo but very hard to see. It is seven and a quarter inches high.

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.
