This listing is for a gorgeous hand painted Ewer / Pitcher / Jug / Creamer made by Royal Worcester, England. It is a Blush Ivory piece. The pattern was registered in 1885. It is marked. Marks date it to 1887. This gem has some extra features that some do not. There is gold trim around the spout. The floral painting goes all around this ewer. There is also a flower painted on the neck of the spout.
There is the capital letter Y under the circle. Dates it to 1887. Capital letters were used as date marks starting in 1867. Lower case letters were used for only one year, in 1890. Starting in 1891 Royal Worcester stopped using a date code. Also starting in 1891 the company began to add the words - Royal Worcester England around the outside of the circle.
Blush Ivory pieces are my favorite. They have a gloss ivory glaze on the inside and a straw colored matt finish on the outside. Sometimes to add to the piece, the artist would spray an apricot color to the gold to make it look aged.
My photos are lousy. What I was attempting to show is that every petal, leave and stem has a gold outline. Blush Ivory is not porcelain but is Parian Clay. Measures 5 3/8" tall, 4 1/2" wide including the handle.
It is in excellent condition. White in photos from flash. As with all antique items, you will see signs of use. Very very tiny amount of wear to the gold trim. Examine photos carefully to add to description. Ask questions before purchase. New items are listed weekly. Email any shipping questions. ENJOY!!
