Two-tone treacleware moulded jug with Gothic arches.

£38.00

Availability: In stock

An octagonal moulded earthenware jug with a striking two-tone treacleware glaze over a pale buff body. Moulded with Gothic arches. The placing of the lighter coloured glaze is done with careful control to achieve a very pleasing contrast.

The base has an impressed quartered circle (?) type mark which is unfortunately not distinctive enough to attribute it to a specific maker. However any kind of maker’s mark is rare on treacleware. This jug was probably made in Staffordshire circa 1845-1865.
