Georgian Mason's Ironstone Jug or Pitcher in School House Pattern, circa 1817

US$801.94

About

This is a fine and rare, ironstone pottery jug or pitcher in the School House pattern, made by Mason's Ironstone, of Lane Delph, Staffordshire, England, in the George 111rd period, circa 1817. The jug is octagonal in form with the "Fenton" shape, having a dragon loop handle. The piece is profusely and richly hand-decorated with bold enamels of cobalt blue, burnt orange, red, salmon and green, all in different shades with much additional gilded detail. The pattern is generally known as the "SCHOOL HOUSE" pattern but it is also listed in some books as the "GAY JAPAN" pattern with the Mason's Collectors Club listing it as the "ROSE AND APPLE" pattern. This is a beautiful jug, heavy for its size, with free flowing hand enamelled decoration and gilding, all indicative of the earliest pieces. The piece has the MASON'S PATENT IRONSTONE CHINA" early mark, impressed in two lines to the base, indicating a very early date of 1813 to 1820. Overall a very beautiful Mason's Jug in a much sought after pattern and in great condition.
