Water jug - ID

Post by Johners2000 on March 21st 2017, 9:38 am

Hi, I think this is a water or wine jug.

The seal on the side is that of Camelford in Cornwall.

But the jug itself (to me) doesn't look English - it looks more continental - possibly French in style.

I don't know how old it is but wondered if anyone could shed any light on it.

I don't have it with me at the moment so I can't photograph the base - I will post this ASAP.

Thanks.

You don't say the size, but it looks like crested ware.
Some was continental manufacture, Holland and Germany.

I think it is Created ware - Possibly Taylor & Kent and made at their Florence Works factory at Longton, Stoke-on-Trent in the 1900s, under their Florentine China brand. It takes the form of an ancient wine decanter. I have just found this miniature one on Etsy.

I have seen a lot of art pottery shapes pop up as crested ware. It suggests to me that they bought end of runs, bankrupt stocks and anything they could get there hands on to stick these transfers on. I don't think the people who sold crested ware made the items they used. I think if it was white and cheap they bought them in.

This one is probably originally a Taylor & Kent as Johners said.

But is this transfer printed or hand-painted? Compare the lettering on the crest of the Camelford jug with that on the Taylor & Kent example.

It's transfer. Sometimes they hand coloured but it's still a transfer. You can see from the way the edge is distorted by how it was applied on to the body.

Yes it's definitely transfer. It has printed on the base 'copy of salisbury kettle' which, when I Google salisbury kettle it is.
