Doulton Lambeth Rare Dog Handle Hunting Pitcher Antique English 6 3/4" Tall:
This is a lovely fine English pitcher, from the 1800's with applied figures. Around the plumpest part of the belly are horses, hunting scenes and dogs. The deep red iron oxide glaze glows orangy brown on the yellow clay of the stoneware body, while it changes to a nice ochre where the dip covered the figural decoration. The rare handle is applied, and is a wonderfully formed hunting dog.
Condition of this beautiful pitcher is good with one small chip on the lip, and firing lines where the spout is joined which is typical in the manufacture of these pieces.
The mark is "Doulton Lambeth England" .
This lovely English pitcher measures about 6 3/4" tall and about 71/2" wide. Please note that my photos were taken in natural light and some were taken in artificial light.
This is a lovely piece to add to a stoneware collection. It has a straightforward, vigorous appeal that is evocative of country manors and brisk morning walks. And it would look just beautiful grouped on a mantle, or with flowers from your English garden.
