Parrot/duck milk jug

Post by slopingsteve on Sun Aug 31, 2014 9:37 am



This is the latest in a series of aviacenrtic acquisitions and another that leaves me scratching my head.It is a milk jug and stands about 5" tall.There is no name on the base, just England written in a scripty sort of style. Some of the decoration is over-glaze, some under. I reckon it was made in the thirties, in Staffordshire but I've never seen one before so this is guesswork. It is cute though and brightens up the morning cup of tea.

I think that it may be by Keele Street Pottery Co. Ltd. that began in 1915 in Keele Street, Tunstall and after the Second World War acquired several other companies to become Staffordshire Potteries Ltd. in 1950.

Much of their early production was unmarked.
