Rare Late Georgian large Mason's Ironstone Jug or Pitcher in Heron Ptn, Ca 1830



This is an unusual rare shaped, large Jug or pitcher made by Mason's ironstone pottery in the Heron pattern and fully back stamped, dating it to Ca 1830. It has a Rare shape and pattern. The jug shape is illustrated on Page 190, Plate 241 of Godden's guide to Mason's China and the ironstone wares, published by The antique collectors club. The jug has a hexagonal form and ovoid shape with a high loop handle terminating in a snake's head. The jug is hand enamelled with typical bold colors over an under-glaze printed, chinoiserie influenced pattern, called the Heron pattern. The base has a documented transfer printed Mason's mark in blue, showing Fenton Stone Works with Pattern No. 311 below. This mark is illustrated on page 125 of the book: Mason's, The first Two Hundred Years written by Gaye Blake Roberts. This mark dates the jug to the period 1825-1840. The jug is in very good condition but has some wear to the base and some glaze crazing which is fairly normal. The wear has not affected its use and it holds liquid with no leaks. A beautiful, distinctive and large early piece.
