Offered is a large oval shaped hunting jug that would date from about 1815 to 1825. There is much relief molding of vines, leaves, figures and animals colored with pink lustre and enamel. The molding of hunters and dogs stands out nicely and contrasts with the smooth body. These pitchers were popular as gifts and, since many were not used but were displayed as gifts, have survived in relatively good condition.
Dimensions: Height is a little over 6 1/2"to the top of the spout. length from handle to spout is 7" and width is about 4 3/4".
Condition: Very Good. There are no chips or cracks and no repairs. The glaze is smooth and unworn and the enamel coloring is good. The pink lustre is good with just a slight amount of wear to the rim and to a very few spots, namely the ear on one of the dogs and the arm of the coat of one of the hunters ( although most white spots in the pictures are not wear, just areas where the lustre was skipped or not applied).
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.
