Offered is a copper lustre pitcher in a form associated with the factory of Enoch Wood and Sons and would date from about 1830 or 1830's. The decoration, as far as the overall form, background yellow enamel and cartouche is fairly well known from this factory, but the scene, that of a swan is far less common. The scene is applied by orange transfer print with additional enamel colors added and is finely done. There are many later copies of copper lustre through the 20th century, but this is an early period pitcher.
Dimensions: Height is 4", length from handle to spout is 5", and the diameter is about 3 1/4".
Condition: Excellent. There are no chips or cracks and no restoration. The delicate print is clear with good color, the glaze is smooth and unworn, and the luster is bright and unworn. All that can be noticed is some in-the-making kiln dust at the bottom on the inside as shown.
Early period antiques are quite old, were made to be used, and frequently have signs of age and use and sometimes a small manufacturing flaw or repair. While this is normal and to be expected, I note any known issues in the condition description.
