A small pearlware jug with wide bands of copper lustre, bordered with pink lustre. There is a continuous applied clay sprig (relief) around the middle of body depicting a farm yard scene. On the left is a man with a dog who is talking to a milkmaid milking a cow; in the middle is a farmhouse with thatched roof and two sheep. On the right is a horse with foal standing in a field by a gate.
The sprigs have been coloured over with enamels including green, yellow, blue, brown, pink and iron red. There are also hand enamelled flowers around the neck. The foot and base have been turned, the spout and handle are moulded with feint leaf type moulding.
This distinctive style of jug is usually attributed to Enoch Wood of Staffordshire. Made circa 1825 to 1835.
See "Lustreware" by M. Gibson (Shire Publications; Buckinghamshire: 1993), p.20 for a similar but larger jug with a sprig of a bull.
