From the marks on the bottom, this is an very early piece of jasper ware introduced in 1767 by the Wedgwood Pottery. The earliest pieces had a blue background with beautiful classical figures and trees, etc. resembling cameos. The detail on these cameos is quite good. There are women, children, trees and bushes. The top of the pitcher has garlands of flowers held by medallions, which also decorates the spout of the pitcher. The handle is decorated, too. The bottom marks are: Wedgwood in a tiny impression, a number 30, a letter D and a letter G or C. There is something else impressed but illegible. The surface has a very silky feel to it.
The size is: 5" high, approximately 5-1/2" wide, and bottom diameter 3-1/2". The condition is mint for its age with one tiny ding on the top which you cannot see unless looking for it. This would be a wonderful addition to collection.
