A narrow form scratch-blue stoneware jug with cylindrical ribbed (or reeded) neck. Turned flared foot with flat base which has kiln debris. Handle is hand-pulled with triangular cross-section, with rudimentary pinched lower terminal. Grey stoneware body with a clear salt glaze.

The body is decorated with incised scratch-blue type loosely drawn flowers / leaves(?). There is an applied sprig medallion on the front middle body which depicts King George III in profile (looking to sinister) with ‘G’ and ‘R’ either side (for Georgius Rex). Blue cobalt oxide is brushed into the incised decoration and elsewhere. There is a flash of manganese or iron on top of the handle and part of rim.

Scratch blue was a British invention which originated in Staffordshire and was inspired by German Westerwald wares.

The last group photo is for information only to show a comparison between British and German wares.

c.1760-1790

Dimensions:

Perfect but with manufacturing flaws, including a kiln glaze touch scar on the portrait and a small glazed over flaw on the turned ring above the foot. The brown line shown above the foot is discolouration rather than a hairline.
