English Imari Pitcher 1880s Gaudy English Jug Britannia Hamered Copper Lid
This fabulous pitcher or jug is probably classed as Victorian Imari or Gaudy Welsh although not Welsh but made Samuel Johnson Britannia Pottery, Staffordshire England so it's Gaudy English.
The imari jug is 7 inches high with a hammered copper lid and was made by 1880-1900.
The earthenware pitcher or jug has all hand painted cobalt blue medallions and trim and a sampler of intricate swirling gold patterns above the half reeded bottom of the jug and gold trim.
The pitcher or jug has a hammered copper lid that fits into a slot and hole either side of the top with pins.
The pretty jug measures 7 inches high.
The jug is in very good +++ used vintage condition except for an old hairline top at the top of the jug as shown in the photo, a cobalt glaze run underglaze done at the time of manufacture and some gold loss from use.
Imari was popularized by the Victorian craze for all things Japanese at the time.
