Sampson Bridgwood & Sons Ltd, Anchor Pottery, Sutherland Road, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent were earthenware manufacturers (also china up to 1887). This little beauty is something else! The pitcher has a beautiful white background and sits on a square gold trimmed base. Transfers of pink flowers on brown stems with two-toned leaves decorate the front and back of the bulbous base and on the front of the neck. The lower portion neck is decorated with a raised cold painted ridge. The upper portion of the neck has a hop nail raised relief with gold accents. A gold ring is going around the square opening. The handle is the neatest part of all! It has gold accented rope like loops coming out of the top portion and the lower portion to lasso the handle where it connects to the piece. The handle itself has gold accents on the hob nail sides and down the center. Ends of the robe are painted gold on the neck of the pitcher. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
