This is an English hard paste porcelain jug or pitcher. The maker is Royal Worcester. The date is circa 1874.

The jug has no maker’s marks, none whatsoever, however it is instantly recognizable as being Royal Worcester. The shape number is 419, which Royal Worcester describes as being a “narrow neck jug, elephant handle.” The blank was designed by Royal Worcester in 1874.

The handle is in the shape of an elephant head, and the elephant’s truck forms the rest of the handle, with the elephant’s big ears being the upper part of the handle. The handle is entirely gilded in gold trim.

Around the rim is a band with a raised design in the porcelain and also gilded in gold. There is a band of gold around the lower neck and again around the base.

The blank has raised designs on the neck and belly.

Flowers are hand painted on both sides of the belly and on the neck.

The outside is glazed an off-white.

There are no chips, nicks, or cracks. There is some wear to the gold trim around the edge of the mouth.
