Any ideas on this please?

Post by tyke1889 on March 6th 2017, 7:03 pm

My mother-in-law has this 4" tall jug, she says (but we're not convinced of this lol) it was her great grandmothers, she's in her 70's so mid 19th Century perhaps? The trouble to us is that it feels very much like some form of composite. It doesn't tap like a ceramic either.
It has no markings on the bottom at all and the flowers look like bluebells or lily of the valley.

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

Oh and sorry the photo's are on their side, I can't work out how to turn them  Frustrated  Shrugs

Mid 19th century is pretty much spot on. Very difficult to tell the maker but have a look on eBay under 'parian jugs' and 'relief moulded jugs' and you'll see plenty similar.
