A pearlware jug with a brown slip ground on body and neck. There are seven different applied white clay sprigs around the body, with ten applied flower sprigs around the neck.

The upper body and above the foot are turned with ribbing. Plain moulded handle with thumb spur and plain spout.

The sprigs (bas-reliefs) around the body include (from right side on obverse): 1] A classical Greek woman playing a double pipe instrument (an aulos). 2] Woman with flower garland - possibly Flora. 3] A bird in a small tree eating berries. 4] The ‘Bourbonais Shepherd’. 5] ‘Andromache Weeping Over the Ashes of Hector’. 6] A woman with a long headdress holding a child in her arms. 7] A dancing woman with round cymbals.

This is an attractive and rare jug, probably made in Staffordshire circa 1820-1835.
