A pearlware jug with silver lustre resist decoration, consisting of six round cartouches, each containing a stylised flower or geometric floral decoration.

There is no foot. The base is turned and recessed and the clear lead glaze shows a blue colour typical of pearlware where it pools under the base. The base has a small enamelled decorators mark of the number 26 in dark red or brown.

The handle has two external spurs and one internal spur, with a spur type upper terminal and a rolled type moulded lower terminal. The spout is plain.

Made in Staffordshire circa 1810-1820.

Silver lustre was produced using platinum rather than silver.
