Tall Flow Blue Ironstone Pitcher Jug SEAWEED MARBLE Staffordshire 1840
Tall Flow Blue Ironstone Pitcher Jug
SEAWEED or MARBLE
Unknown Maker Staffordshire England c1840
This is an extemely photogenic tall paneled jug transfer printed in a deep cobalt blue flow blue decorated in an overall marbleized motif that looks like seaweed or marble stone (some people call it cracked ice.) The design is a classic example of the Victorian love of nature and the exotic. The pitcher stands 11-1/4 inches tall with a wide spout, tree-branch molded handle, and a 6 inch wide octagonal base
The jug is marked with an impressed ‘IRONSTONE’ and incised + tally mark. The pattern was made by several English Staffordshire potteries in the early to mid-1800s including Ridgway, Dimmock Ashworth (Masons) and Minton, to name a few.
The jug is extremely sturdy and in great condition, with no chips cracks or repairs. Kiln dust, kiln kisses, a slight wobble to the base and other minor ruddiness to the handle consistent with age and typical manufacturing imperfections, adding to the authenticity of the pitcher.
A perfectly charming English ironstone flow blue treasure in a hard to find form, made to hold the fresh flowers of the season. Cat not included!
