Description

White salt-glazed stoneware, painted in polychrome enamels in imitation of Chinese famille rose porcelain

Off-white stoneware, thrown, salt-glazed, and painted in blue, green, yellow, pink, red, brown, and black enamels which are slightly raised. The jug is pear shaped, with a pointed lip and a strap handle with a kick at the lower end, and stands on a foot. The body is decorated on the side with a brown fence, with grass beneath it, and flowering branches travelling from the fence round to the other side of the jug. The flowers are in red, blue, and yellow, and there is a bunch of grapes in the middle. There is a leaf spray on each side of the lip. The rim is encircled by a pink ribbon and leaves, and the inside is edged by alternating panels containing green trellis pattern, and a flower.
