A gorgeous antique Jackfield water or ale jug with hinged pewter lid. The jug has a wide fluted body with the traditional shiny black Jackfield glaze and is decorated with green coloration and gilt outlined leaves. The base shows the red clay of the Jackfield, Shropshire, England region, though these pieces were also produced in the Staffordshire region. It stands 7 3/8" tall and measures 7 3/8" from spout tip to outermost part of handle. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, or crazing and only the slightest of wear to the gilt trim.
