Mid-19th Century Patriotic Parian Jug w/ Molded Decoration: Washington & American Flag
A mid-19th century American Patriotic Parian Jug (probably English) with molded decoration and a “make-do” pewter lid. The sides of the jug are embossed with images of George Washington, holding a sword in one hand and a scroll in the other, Washington comforting and elderly widow, and American flags and a shield (under the spout) and flags back by the handles. There is also a decorative top border and molded handle and base. The jug is about 7 ¼” tall and 5” from handle to spout. There are no maker’s marks on this dry glazed piece, but it was made by Edward Walley of Cobridge, c. 1856; there are there no touch marks on the pewter lid, which has a wonderful sea creature finial.
The jug is in excellent condition. It is not stained and there are no chips, cracks, lines or restorations. A rare piece showing that the reverence for George Washington extended well into the 19th century.
