T R Boote Antique Samuel & Eli Biblical Relief Moulded Stoneware Jug c1848 (Code 2456)
A fine quality moulded jug by the Staffordshire firm of T R Boote. The jug is known as 'Samuel & Eli' after the main design which is repeated on both sides. The rendition is taken from the painting of the same name by John Singleton Copley in 1780. The jug dates 1848-50 and was one of just a small number of relief moulded designs produced by this factory. This example is in a sandy buff tone, it is also known to exist in white and versions with pewter lids were also made.
To the underside of the base is the black printed royal coat of arms mark, this is usually accompanied by the makers name and 'Patent Mosaic' but is absent here. The raised bracket feet are a distinctive touch and the moulded detail is of a high standard. The front of the jug has an Arabic gentleman serving to cover the mould seem, and there is also a mask head boss under the handle serving the same purpose. A must have design for the moulded jug collector.
Generally very good. Minor firing flaws as expected with small surface tears in the clay. Some brown dust adhered to the handle glaze caused during firing in the kiln.
