This is a fabulous Antique Charles Meigh and Son Old Hall Works, Hanley, Staffordshire Potteries Blue and White Jug/Pitcher decorated with a complex molded design. On the bottom is the Charles Meigh and Sons impressed diamond shaped registry mark and cypher for the year 1856. The Jug measures 9" tall on a 3 1/2" base.

This artistic vessel is highly decorated with a relief Mythological theme. It depicts Amphitrate, the wife of Poseidon, naked water maidens, and nymphs. The elaborate handle on the top has a stylized bird and a face of Neptune at the bottom. The base is a scalloped rim in the form of seashells. This type of Jug was very popular during the Victorian era and used to serve hot and cold liquids including water, beer, milk, ale, and wine.

Condition: Missing metal lid, clean inside, no chips or cracks. Some light brown speckling on white relief due to age. Absolutely lovely to look at and enjoy.
