This pitcher (jug, ewer) has dark blue transfer mimicking the "Canton" export china.

The body is light colored earthenware, with a gadrooned edge around the top opening, an ornate handle, a wide lip and a bulbous body.

One interesting aspect is to see how much difficulty the makers had fitting the transfer around the top and the handle.

Unmarked, but probably one of the Staffordshire potteries ca. 1840.

Size: Approximately 9.5" high.

Condition: 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, returns are no problem if I happen to miss anything.
