Antique English Wedgwood Pottery Pearlware Fox Hunting Jug.

Wedgwood Pearlware Fox Hunting Jug,

Circa 1810.


This ovoid Wedgwood pottery pearlware jug has a cylindrical neck, a projecting lip and a ribbed ear-shaped loop handle. Bat printed on each side in puce is a hunting scene.  A thin gilt band encircles the bottom as well as lining the shoulder, the top rim, spout, lip and handle.  A gilt rosette decorates the projecting lip as well as the back of the handle in a larger version.  Under the lip are the scrolling gilt initials "TW" framed by a circular gilt garland, minor rubbing to gilt on spout.

Dimensions: 6 1/2 in high (16.5 cm).

Jugs of this nature were manufactured between 1810-1820.  The bat printing subject of a hunting scene was one of the more popular early 19th-century subjects.  The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery in Stoke-on-Trent has a similar puce-colored jug with a matching beaker, cat. Q12/13.

Marks: Impressed WEDGWOOD and four squares forming a square.
