Scroddled agateware jug, c.1860

This ceramic jug dates from the mid-1800’s and was most likely made in Staffordshire, England. It is completely covered in an abstract “agate” transfer design.

The original pewter lid remains, but the long gone¬†ceramic handle has been remade out of tin. Jug measures 8-3/4″ tall.

The combination of the wood grain-like decoration and the wild metal straps make this 150 year old jug look quite modern.

This jug with similar agate transfer decoration and pewter lid still maintains its original loop-shaped handle.

    What sort of value is this, I have one that looks exactly like the one directly above, but with the tin handle, it has T Booth, Hanley printed on the pewter lid.
