A fine large English Antique Pottery Pitcher, probably Staffordshire made, well proportioned, red clay, copper glazed and lustre externally with Pink Sunderland lustre border around its middle belly and another thinner band around its neck. Partially ‘’Pearlware glazed’’ internally. There’s also a very decorative 3 dot row of ’’ jewelling’’ in a band around just below the top of the neck. The pronounced poring lip is finished on both its sides as it meets the body with a molded leaf pattern. This jug is in very good condition having only one small chip to the inside edge of the pronounced lip. This chip cannot be seen externally, and does not detract from its display potential.
This Pitcher is a particularly lovely decorative example. It’s proportions are exceptionally good. It’s in very good condition for it’s age and particularly beautiful for having it’s ‘Sunderland’ lustre decorative bands around it.
