A lovely scalloped rim pitcher with figural serpent handle and beautiful brown geometric transferware pattern around the top, with birds of paradise and flowers around the middle, enameled in green, blue, pink and yellow. The textured snake handle has a strange face at the end and painted with a bright green stripe down the middle.

BIRDS OF PARADISE
This mark is shown on the 'A-Z of Stoke on Trent Potters' website as the Everard, Colclough & Townsend potters in Longton, England.
In excellent condition; there is very minor roughness around the top rim but no chips or damage I can find.
