#AD378: 1870's Victorian Dudson Brown Sprigged Relief Fallow Deer Jug Pitcher w Pewter Lid
Just a great old original circa 1870's 9.5 inch tall white stoneware jug or pitcher with great Victorian sprig relief of leaves/ scroll and a fallow deer pattern. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. It is unmarked, but we have had many similar jugs to this, marked Dudson.
It was found recently in Totnes, Devon. The bottom has a great impressed English pottery registration mark, see photos. From 1842-1883 the British Patent Office issued a diamond registration mark along with a registration number when a design was registered with the government. See photos.
The condition is very clean, click images to see condition. It is very solid and heavy for its size, one we were so very happy to find in this condition. it has a small ironstone knob on the pewter assembly, see photos. A beautiful original piece. The only thing we can find to report as to condition is some very minor spotted discolouration on bottom, see bottom photo of the mark. It also has an incised number 12 on bottom near rim, see photos. There is some wear around pewter top which is made to cover the spout, also can be seen in photos.
Size: 9.5 inches tall, width is 4.5 inches without handle, 5.5 inches width with the handle, it is 16 inches in diameter at the widest part of jug.
