Superb Large Antique Victorian Blue Glazed Mask Jug With Serpent Handle ~ 19thc:
This is a beautiful antique Victorian blue glazed mask head jug with serpent handle,dating from around the 1850's.
The jug is relief moulded with a large mask head under the spout,warriors heads with fruiting vine,waves and scrolls and a fabulous serpent handle.It was probably intended for pouring wine.It is in very good condition with no chips or restoration.There is a tiny firing crack at the base of the handle and a couple of frits on the handle.With such an elaborate handle it is amazing that it hasn't broken over the years.The jug measures 18 cms high x 16 cms wide (spout - handle) x 9.8 cms diameter across the base.
A lovely Victorian jug that would grace any collection.
