This pitcher (or jug) has been the benefit of an extensive, but very good restoration. This was probably undertaken because the transfer, with a temperance theme, was so interesting.

On one side is an image of an angel holding a cartouche with the legend "Intemperance is Ireland's and England's curse and Scotland's woe. At top is "The drunkard shall not enter the kingdom of God" with "the all-seeing eye" image below.

The other side has a transfer of a more commonplace message. The image is of an accident with a cart with the legend "Want of care does us more damage than want of knowledge".

Not sure the two sides are related in their messaging; perhaps the jug was turned one way or another depending on audience!

Transfers are in black, with pink luster bandings and trim. No maker's mark, but likely Staffordshire ca. 1835-40, as this same transfer has been seen on Staffordshire children's plates.

Size: Approximately 5.5" high

Condition: Extensive restoration, though very well done. I can see areas of upper body, spout. Even if not visible, I would assume possibly more. Do the same and we'll both be happy.

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.
