Hand Decorated Pearlware Miniature Jug

Stars ~ Snowflakes

Staffordshire, England c 1800

This is a striking (micro) miniature mug, richly hand decorated with 15 cobalt blue or flow blue snowflakes or stars, hand outlined rim and handle, finished with ponded blue pearlware glaze. The tiny pitcher stands just 1-15/16 inches tall with a raised turned foot and applied handle. A wonderful example of late 18th or early 19th century doll size folk art miniature.

The piece was made in Leeds or the Staffordshire region of England. It is unmarked. One of the earliest wares intended for children, to use in instructing them in proper table manners or simply to decorate a dollhouse dining table or tea party dating to the late 18th or early 19th century. Typical of these very early toy dishes, the jug bears no makers mark and the exact maker is unknown.
The jug is in overall good condition with old chipping inside the foot rim, a faint old age line on the rim, glaze wear on the side and no other chips cracks or repairs. Minor typical imperfections from the making process, adding to the authenticity of this antique toy.  Minor spots of discoloration on the side consistent with age. This is one of the prettiest and simplest hand decorated motifs we've found; an extraordinary addition to an AAFA folk art collection. Sold as is.
