This is one of the largest and most colorful pieces of decorated pearlware I have ever had. This was first decorated with transfers of large medallions of birds on sides, a rural scene below spout, and floral and geometric borders. Glazes were used over the transfers to add color to the design elements (some rather casually applied, as was typical for these "piecework" productions), and a rust red background and brushwork on spout. There are also scraps of clay that were left in the interior and fired in permanently! No maker's mark, but probably made in Staffordshire district, circa 1825.

All in all, a showy, large example that will be the center of attention in your corner cupboard!

Note: International shipping is not available fo this item.

Size: Approximately 6.5" tall, 7" at widest part of body.

Condition: Excellent. Some slight surface scratches and enamel flakes, one faint line on inside of collar. Some minor foot rim chips (during making, as these appear to be glazed over). No chips, cracks or repairs.

Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
