This handsome hand painted porcelain milk jug measures 8-1/4" high to the top of the unusual swan's head handle.
It was purchased in the 1960's from the "Old World" antique shop within Seattle's famous Frederick & Nelson Department Store. The original tag reads: Austrian Cream Jug, c.1820. Based upon the style, I agree with that information. The jug is unmarked.
It is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no wear. No apologies at all. The colors are gold and deep green. The leaves alternate those colors.
