This is a very small English Royal Worcester miniature, a small jug or pitcher, or toothpick holder, made of hard paste porcelain. The date is circa 1903 to 1904.
The miniature is only 2 ¼” high and 2 ¼” wide from spout to handle.
The shape is that of a tiny jug or pitcher, with a spout and a handle.
The exterior is a shaded cream to brown . The rim is outlined in a thin gold line, and with more gold on the handle. There is age wear on the gold. There is a nosegay of hand painted flowers on the front and back, daisy-like flowers in blue, yellow and red with green leaves.
On the underside there is the printed Royal Worcester Mark with enough dots to take the date of the piece to around 1903 or so. There is a green number of 1022 underscored by the letter G. There is a handwritten 1903 and another number 19. The 1022 number does not correspond to a shape number, so perhaps it is a pattern number.
There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing, only wear to the gold trim.
