This rare and decorative jug and bowl was produced by Derby during the early 19th century, circa 1800. Both pieces have been produced to an excellent quality and are decorated with extensive scrolling gilt decoration. Each piece features a hand painted European topographical scene painted by the Derby artist, George Robertson. Both pieces are marked with the Derby red crown and baton mark. We believe that both pieces were likely produced as part of a Cabaret service due to the very small size of the jug and the level of detail in its painting. Cabaret services are extremely rare and sought after. Due to their small toy size, the jug and bowl would also now display excellently as a water jug and wash bowl for an antique doll.
For a similar example of the jug please see Plate 219 in An Illustrated Encyclopedia Of British Pottery And Porcelain by Geoffrey A Godden F.R.S.A, Second Edition.
Measuring: Jug width 2 inch (5.5 cm) by height 3 1/8 inch (8 cm). Bowl diameter 3.75 inch (9.5 cm) by height 1 7/8 inch (5 cm).
Condition: Minor crazing to the glaze on the interior of the jug, tiny firing fault to the reverse of the jug, gilding has slightly dulled on the handle. The bowl has a vertical hairline and wear to the gilded exterior.
This is a fantastic opportunity to own a pair of 200 year old plus items produced by one of England’s best porcelain manufactures.
