MILL STONEWARE, ART NOUVEAU PERIOD C.1905-10, ART POTTERY JUG PRINCESS
"Beautiful antique stoneware
jug by Lovatt of Langley Mill with an early example of the Princess
ware pattern. Decoration is a stunning combination of relief hand
coloured daisy pattern; applied decorative motifs to border and handle
in coloured slip and hand painted floral design to top glazed band.
This is a one quart pitcher jug - probably the largest size made by
Lovatt in this pattern. The ideal size for decorative display: allowing
fully three rows of the repeat daisy flower pattern to be displayed on
the body of the jug. It dates from the English Edwardian art nouveau
period, circa 1905-10." Antiques

Dimensions: height 180 mm
Condition: Overall a very
good display item. Condition report: There is a hairline crack
from the spout of the jug (illustrated) which extends fully across the
top blue band. It is not immediately obvious from the front from
general display views - being partly lost in the highly glazed
reflective finish. It is easily felt. Nevertheless a beautiful display
