Large Colorful Water Pitcher ANIMALS
Elsmore & Forster Staffordshire England c1860

This is an irresistible transfer printed ironstone serving jug, probably made originally for a local tavern. It stands 8 3/4 inches tall, 8 inches across including the molded handle. Transfer printed in black with hand-painted high enamel paint and lustres and iron red rims. It was made by the Staffordshire England firm of Elsmore and Foster, Clayhills Pottery, Tunstall, which operated between 1853 and 1871.
This jug has a bear, boar, horses, cats, squirrel and peacock. Also has a whimsical scene of a woman whacking her husband with a frying pan….who knows what kind of mischief happened.

Animal images printed on jugs are uncommon. The pitcher was decorated using old theatrical and chap book engravings which they transfer printed in different combinations on various-sized jugs loving cups and mugs.
The cup is in exceptional condition with no chips cracks or repairs, fully functional and great to display or use. Possibly never used.
