Large Victorian Majolica Jug

SKU: RJ01783
£58.00Price

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.

 

This is a good sized majolica jug with floral leaf decoration and an embossed design to the handle.

 

Condition is good with no chips or cracks.

 

Dimensions: 20cm high x 20cm wide x 18cm diameter
