A dark blue Staffordshire Jug or Pitcher in the "Water Girl" (sometimes called Girl or Rebecca at the Well, after the Bible Story) by James & Ralph Clews, c. 1820. The transfer shows a young girl drawing water from a well; you've got to love the little dog that waits patiently behind her. There is a bold floral border and the jug is marked with an uncommon Clews Printed Crown mark: "Water Girl" Clews Manufactured. The bulbous-shaped jug is 6 3/8" to the high point in the spout, and the handle to spout distance is about 8 ¾". Except for a small (approximately 3/16") darkened chip on the underside of the spout at the tip (virtually unnoticeable unless you turn the jug over), the piece is in very fine condition: the blue is extremely dark and there are no cracks, lines, restorations, etc. A jug of this size was probably used for milk, water or cider/ale.
