The biscuit jar or barrel has the applied white jasper classical motif of Muses and is marked with the impressed letters W L and another and inscribed 852 on the bottom.The jar is easily identified as Dudson with the correct marks and numbering system.
The biscuit barrel or cookie jar is in very good +++ used vintage condition with the only flaw a very tiny blue fleck missing as seen in the photo, and minor staining in the interior due to the oil in the biscuits or cookies stored within for decades.
It is a fabulous antique mid to late Victorian piece of Dudson, a pottery who rivaled Wedgwood in superior workmanship.
