Classical Shaped Water Pitcher - metal cap.

This piece is a classical shape but I don't think it's particularly old. The cap is showing signs of age and the base has a number 2 which looks old in style so it could be early both century. Possibly French or at least continental. Any thoughts.

Stoneware late 19th century. The number is probably the size, with other numbers available 1 being the smallest. If the collar has no marks then could be continental but as easily be English but unmarked. Many companies existed on the Thames making this type of thing for the local breweries. Mortlake , Hammersmith, Fulham, Lambeth and onwards all stoneware hot spots in the 19th century. Don't think on it's worst day it is much later than the first wold war, the styles had changed to much by then for it to be unusual. Probably still great for holding beer this summer and that is what I suggest you do with it Excellent

Could well be Denby, or with those turning marks on the base, Langley mill.
They both did this type of vessel.
The top could be silver plate.

There is an Identical shaped jug in the langley book, though from a different range,
so I would be pretty confident it is Langley Mill, c1900 onwards.

I found this one on ebay which is described as a 'French Stoneware Brandy Olive Oil Bottle'.

Don't believe everything on Ebay.
I have had these before.

I know Ebay is not a good source of reliable data.

But this one (on Ebay) is definitely French as it has it on the base. Perhaps the French imported them or copied them from an English design?

The shape is slightly different though.

I'd have a good punt at that being Denby pottery, despite the backstamp.
