Victorian Antique Cork & Edge Keepers Daughter Moulded Stoneware Jug c1855 (Code 2469)
A very interesting Victorian moulded jug by Cork & Edge of Burslem in the Staffordshire potteries. This firm presented numerous designs at exhibition in 1855, many of which where made by other factories and never turned up with a Cork & Edge mark, suggesting they widely copied other factories. This jug is however marked using a clay pad which gives the makers name and the name of the jug 'Keepers Daughter'. There seems to be little information about this design available, although I believe there are some Walley jugs which have a near identical pattern. Given the notoriety of the Cork & Edge designs exhibited in 1855 it is likely their jugs are a little later to the field compared to the majority, the firm was relatively short lived from 1846-60 subsequently becoming Cork, Edge & Malkin. This gives quite a neat window for the age of this item.
The jug is in white stoneware with a blue glaze to the majority leaving the subject in white. You can see the white beneath in some other small areas where the glaze does not fully cover. The handle is also in the form of a dog. Overall a very attractive piece.
There is a chip to the underside of the rim. Minor wear and the usual small potting, glaze and firing flaws of the period
