William Ridgway Rare Vine & Framework Moulded Stoneware Jug - Victorian c1846 (Code 2436)
A moulded stoneware jug by William Ridgway. It is in the 'Vines & Framework' pattern which is particularly rare with few coming to market suggesting production was very limited at the time. The jug is in a buff glaze and the vine leaves are very well defined with finer detail than usual for this type of item.
This model was referenced in the Art Union publication in 1846 (December) with an engraving of the design. They made reference to the Elizabethan style handle which they thought out of place with the rest of the design. Perhaps this criticism contributed to the small number manufactured. This example has J and 30 impressed into the clay to the base, examples are known with a registration lozenge are known to exist.
Chip to the base most visible to image 4, otherwise very good with slight firing flaws.
