This is a very rare shaped early Jug or pitcher, hand painted in the gold gilded Rose Posies pattern against a Mazarine blue ground, made by Mason's Ironstone, Lane Delph, England and dating to circa 1813-1820.
This jug is hand potted in a very rare shape with a loop handle and a pouring spout to the rim. The pattern is hand painted in the Rose Posies pattern all against a Mazarine blue ground colour with hand gilded twirls, as illustrated on page 32 of a guide to Mason's patent ironstone patterns, circa 1813-1848, published by The Mason's Collectors' Club.
This jug is unmarked to the base, as was often the case in this period but this piece is definitely made by Mason's Ironstone with a similar jug illustrated on page 188 of Geoffrey Godden's guide to Masons China published by The Antique Collectors' Club.
