EARLY CHILDS TRANSFERWARE PITCHER JUG
Commemorating the Christening of a Child named ROBERT
Staffordshire England ~ c. 1830
This delightful named jug stands 2 1/4" high x 2 3/8" wide excluding the fancy molded handle. The name " ROBERT " is transfer printed in black on the front of the pitcher.
One side has a transfer of a boy teaching his dog to sit up. The other side has a boy and girl visiting a parrot in a cage. A decorated border transfer follows the rim inside and out as well as on the handle.
The jug is in remarkable condition, with the start of an age line to the left of the top of the handle, a small fracture on the side of the handle and no other chips cracks or repairs. Children's early commemorative pitchers and jugs of this quality are quite scarce and highly sought after. The name Robert is one of the hardest names to find on these early wares. Primitively made with transfer wrinkles and stray dots of blue under the glaze, original to the making.. The images are delightful, a throwback to a much simpler time. Sold as is. The Christening jug will make a great addition to your collection of children's wares and it would be a lovely gift for a friend named Robert.
