Staffordshire Sunderland Pink Lustre ~ Sailors Farewell ~ Pitcher C1820 Nr For Sale
English Staffordshire or Sunderland Pearlware Pink Lustre Pitcher c1820
~ Sailors Farewell Jug ~ Black Transferware Illustration and Flowers ~
6" high ~ about 7 1/2" from spout to handle
An antique English porcelain bulbous pitcher with the Sailors Farewell illustration and verses, the transfers of the poems were not carefully applied and the letters appear cut off in places but this is all in the making. The main illustration shows the wife and children leaving the sailor with the ship in the distance, the other side of the jug has a verse 'I envy no one's birth or fame' surrounded by a flower border. The rim and spout is painted with pink lustre and the pink lustre was painted throughout in squiggles.
In overall excellent condition; there is no major damage to the piece but there is some beige staining to the pottery (probably an over burn?) mostly around the middle that fades to the bottom. This could be professionally cleaned to appear all white again but even as is, it has a very attractive display. The handle and spout are fine and except for around the top rim, the lustre is remarkably intact. There is one chip under the footrim that isn't seen when upright.
Below, the chip under the footrim falls just under the handle, as you can see above it is hardly noticeable standing upright.
