Large Staffordshire ~ John Waram 1830 ~ Black Transferware Pearlware Name Jug :
English Staffordshire Pearlware Large Pink Lustre Enameled Black Transferware Name Jug c1830
~ John Waram * 1830 ~
Handle is just over 7" high ~ 8 1/2" from spout to handle
An early English pearlware baluster water pitcher or jug with black transferware rural scenes of a boy, groom and horse under the spout, a farm scene harvesting wheat on another side and a large estate with cows and river on the other. The transfers are colored with enamels in several shades of green, blue, peach and brown. Around the main transfers is fantastic hand painted or free hand painted large red roses with green foliage and smaller blue and red dot flowers. The central horse image is surrounded by a border of red tulips and leaves. The handle is moulded as overlapping leaves and detailed with brick red enamel, as well as the flower shape spout. Under the spout is painted 'John Waram 1830' in a lovely scrolling script in pink lustre.
IThis is a fantastic large jug and the handpainted enamels are in great condition, see the pics to assess any flaked parts. As expected the pink lustre has worn around the rim, some wear on the handle. There is one old repaired chip to the rim which has yellowed you can see below but this is easy to over look when there is so much else to look at.
The handle is in great shape, never off or broken, there is just some expected age wear at the edges.
The bottom has a couple scrapes, one which shows slightly on the outside but not terrible.
The enameler got a bit carried away and completely covered the boys features, there are just a few flakes to the green enamel, for the most part the enamels are in amazing condition for its age.
for looking, !
