LUSTRE MASK JUG
This auction is for the third well potted earthenware jug we are listing with vibrant lustre decoration on a deep turquoise ground showing Greek style vases and candlesticks on an ornate marble table…there is a stylised lustre border to the rim with a small scroll pattern to the inner rim.
There is a well defined ‘mask’ in relief to the outer lip and the lustred molded handle has a snake twining around with the head resting on the top.
The overall condition is very good without chips, cracks or restoration…the lustre has remained bright and the glaze is in good order with a very small amount of intermittent wear to the turquoise ground, not unsightly.
The jug stands 5½ ins - 13.8cms high and is 4½ ins - 11.2cms across lip to handle.
Marked to the base with impressed EDWARDS a backstamp in use c.1841 by the potters James & Thomas Edwards of Burslem in Staffordshire…there is also a painted pattern number 1352
An interesting and very striking antique jug with high decorative value from a renowned Staffordshire manufacturer…
