Chinese Temples early transfer ware jug. This antique jug has fabulous colour and Chinese style landscape and temples transfer wear, including a lovely border inside the rim and detailing down the handle. It is thought to date from as early as the 1850s. Octagonal base shape and lovely embellished handle.
Dimensions: height 18cm, diameter at rim (widest point) 10cm, overall width at widest point 18cm. This has a small graze in the glaze, a rub on the spout, and a small crack at the base of the handle, but it is sound. Not bad for such an age - a lovely piece. In the style of Mason's but no maker's mark. Please see images as these form part of description.
