John Turner Longton Staffordshire Moulded Stoneware Jug Rubenesque Scene c1790 (Code 2547)

  • £12500


A late 18th century stoneware jug by John Turner.  It is of moulded form with the main decoration being to the front of the jug as opposed to the sides.  The scene of a winged cherub figure with further cherubs and a lamb was likely inspired by Peter Paul Rubens 'Christ and John the Baptist and Two Children as Angels'.  The other two sides feature a bush and a tree.  The majority of the ground is ivory coloured stoneware and the top is dipped in brown glaze.  The handle has an anthemion terminal and there are grape and vines around the top of the shoulders suggesting it was likely intended for alcoholic drinks.  The base is impressed 'Turner' and the jug likely dates 1790-1800.



Generally good for period with minor production flaws.  The brown glaze didn't fully take to parts of the handle and left the white streaks you can see (and feel).  Small glaze chips to ribs just below the pouring spout.
