ST IVES POTTERY JUG WITH UNUSUAL DECORATION OR IMPOSTER?

Post by bishbosh on September 4th 2015, 1:05 am

This is my first post so I hope there are no problems.

I would appreciate any comments on a jug I found recently which appears to have the St Ives Pottery mark but has been decorated with rather gaudy roses.  Either I am wrong about the mark or it has been vandalised at some point!

It is about 7.5"/19cm tall and looks similar to others I have found on Google, which either had or apparently at one time had a lid.  I am attaching photos (I hope!) and can provide more if they would help.

Thank you

You're right it's a Leach, St Ives, jug, but it's been painted at a later date with barge-style roses - the sort of decoration you get on wooden buckets and cast iron pieces on canal barges. I'd get some paint stripper and clean them off.

Looks like a coffee pot with the lid missing.

As Potty says, it is most certainly a Leach Pottery coffee pot with the lid missing and the flowers have been added by an amateur painter at a later date.

You see many of these coffee pots without their lids offered on Ebay as jugs by unscrupulous sellers but the Leach Pottery jugs were a different shape.
