This is a very decorative fairly large & well hand painted, Jug or Pitcher made by Mason's ironstone pottery, circa 1830.


It has a rare shape and pattern. A jug of the same shape and pattern is illustrated on Page 192, Plate 245 of Godden's guide to Mason's China and the ironstone wares, published by The Antique collectors club. The jug has a hexagonal form and ovoid shape with a high loop handle, having a thumb spur at the top and terminating in a serpent's head.


The jug is hand enamelled with typical bold colours over an under-glaze printed floral pattern called wavy floral chain with floral sprigs, all with mazarine blue and hand gilded detail. This pattern is illustrated on page 51 of the Mason's Collectors Club book entitled " A Guide to Mason's Patent Ironstone patterns" The base has a black printed round crown Mason's mark, which dates the jug to the period Circa 1830 when William 1V was on the throne, after the end of the Georgian period.


 This jug is very decorative with bold bright enamels and No Damage.
