SKU: RJ01812
£35.00Price

In the mid to late 19th century a type of pottery known as majolica was made by a  simple process, whereby coloured lead glazes were applied direct to an unfired clay mould, typically relief-moulded, resulting in brightly coloured, hard-wearing, inexpensive wares both useful and decorative, most commonly decorated with flora and fauna. This type of majolica was introduced to the public at the 1851 Great Exhibition in London, later widely copied and mass-produced byMinton & Co., who developed the coloured lead glazes product.

 

A Pretty Majolica jug with a bow decoration.

 

Condition is good with no chips or cracks, minor scuffs to the glaze on the rim.

 

Dimensions: 11 cm high
