This super copper lustre jug is hand-painted with a beautiful frieze of pink and purple flowers.
It was produced by Wade Heath & Co of Burslem - one of the Staffordshire potteries. They were renowned for producing pieces with hand-painted, rich copper lustre glazes.
There is some slight rubbing and the odd mark on this 70+ year old item.
6.25 inches | 160mm high
This jug is the larger version - the smaller being approximately 5 inches high, listed separately.
Equally suitable as a vase, display piece or a most appealing dispenser of sangria perhaps.
Backstamp in use from 1939. The numbers 4879 or 4 & 79 also appear.
This pretty piece is in excellent vintage condition.
