Pitcher Staffordshire England Imari Or Gaudy English Jug Britannia 1890s
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 1890-1900.
The earthenware pitcher or jug has cobalt blue medallions and trim and a sampler of intricate 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/hole either side of the top with pins.
The jug is in very good +++ used vintage condition except for 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.
