An attractive pearlware jug with black transfer printed designs which have been hand-painted with polychrome enamels. The transfer print includes three reserve panels with different scenes. On obverse panel is a Chinese walled garden with a musician, three other figures and a group of buildings in the distance. On the reverse side panel is a similar but different Chinese house and garden scene, this time the figures include a woman with a bird perched on her right hand, a child is waving a stick at the bird whilst the woman looks the other way. The reserve panel on the front of jug shows a brightly coloured bird in a small tree. The enamel colours used include bright red, light purple, blue, light green, yellow, orange and pink/flesh. The base has a transfer number '3' in black. No foot, simple turned base, glaze has blue tint where it pools. Handle is extruded, spout is plain moulded.
Probably made in Staffordshire, England, around 1810 to 1820.
