“Thee Creswell” hand painted jug, c.1818

Wonderfully painted soft paste yellow ware pottery jug made in Leiestershire, located in central England

The hand painted pastoral scene in black seems to have been inspired by an 18th century engraving

Hand lettered and dated: “Thee Creswell, Ibstock 1818”

Jug stands 6-1/2″ tall

A graceful tin handle with thumb grip and curled flourishes replaces the original pottery handle, which must have broken off at least 100 years ago
