Antique Staffordshire Dark Blue Transferware Jug W/ Birds & Fruit Historical:
A lovely circa 1820s Staffordshire dark blue transfer pitcher in an ornate pattern with birds, nest of eggs, fruits and flowers.Displays well, however there are condition issues. There are three tiny 1/16" flakes off the top rim. There is a 1/2" long in-the-making chip in the pottery off the spout tip. There is a 1.75" long piece of the spout that was broken off and cleanly reglued. There is a 3/16" long chip off the edge of the base rim and a very faint and short spider line in the base. The color is nice and the glaze is shiny. My description makes it sound worse than it looks; it's a nice shelf piece.Measures 6&1/8" tall and 7" across from handle to spout.
