Large early antique Mason’s ironstone jug. A jug of unusual form, hand painted on a white background. The top has scalloped rounded edges with a floral motif around the interior rim. The handle has an entwined strap with moulded floral terminals. The stem and base have a raised design around the circumference adding a subtle decorative appeal. The Asian-inspired floral motif is hand painted in burnt orange, green and cobalt blue, and the base has incised non-skid marks. The jug is unmarked but is attributed to Mason’s. See plate #239 of Geoffrey Godden’s, Mason’s China & Ironstone Wares where an example similar to this jug is shown. Circa 1840. English.
Height: 8 3/4″ (22 cm)
Width from handle to spout: 7″ (18 cm)
Capacity: 2 litres/2000 mls
No chips or cracks. Some loss of hand painted enamel. Minor oxidation, flea bites and crazing. In overall very good condition for its age.
