Adorned with Goddesses, Cherubs and various animals including a bird, this antique Dudson Brothers jasperware biscuit jar is quite similar to Wedgwood. Known as "the poor man's Wedgwood" the company produced this ware from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s, with this piece being made after 1898. Made of pottery with the scenes in white relief, the jar has a metal collar, lid and hinged handle which all show wear to the metal, as to be expected, while the pottery portion is in good condition and is clean on the inside. Measures 10 inches tall when the handle is up, 6.25 inches when not, and is about 5.5 inches in diameter. It is marked Dudson Brothers, Hanley, England on the bottom. Beautiful as well as useful and a fine piece of the past.
