A decorative pink lustre moulded cream jug with a drab coloured body. Moulded in a roughly quatrefoil form, composed of four fluted / gadrooned panels, each with a circular central reserve. It has a line of beading around the shoulder and the handle has beading along each edge. There is low relief flower moulding around the neck which has been painted with pink lustre flowers. The rim, the body flutes, the handle and the spout all have pink lustre highlights, the reserves have ferris wheel or windmill type motifs.

These jugs are also found in larger sizes. Probably made in Staffordshire circa 1810 to 1825.

An identical jug in size and moulding but with silver resist lustre on a pearlware body, is shown for comparison in the last photo.
