EARLY CHILDS BLACK TRANSFERWARE PITCHER JUG
Staffordshire England ~ c. 1840
This delightful named jug stands 2 1/4" high x 2 3/8" wide excluding the applied handle. The name SAMUEL is shown on the front of the pitcher, along with two other transfers. One side has a transfer of a young lass with his dog, his best friend. The other side of the small jug has a young boy teaching his best friend his dog, new tricks. Daisy chain transfers follow the rim inside and out as well as on the handle.
The jug is in remarkable condition, only a very tiny flake off the underside of the rim. Children's early pitchers / jugs of this quality is quite scarce and highly sought after. The images are delightful, a throwback to a much simpler time. The cup will make a great addition to your collection of children's dishes.
