Large Stoneware Ale Jug Sprigged Hunting Scene Chetham and Woolley c 1810


A superb, large sized antique Regency period ale jug made of sprigged feldspathic stoneware. It is of a shape that is sometimes referred to as "Dutch Type". This very decorative six pints capacity ale jug is unmarked, as is often the case with ceramics dating from this period however, it was made by Staffordshire makers, Chetham and Woolley. For a similar item see plate 127, page 87 ‘Chetham and Woolley Stonewares 1793-1821’ Colin Wyman, published Antique Collectors Club 2011. It dates from around 1810 - 1815 and stands 8 1/4 inches high. 


The jug is of and unmarked "Mist Type" ( The London Retailer) made of cream coloured stoneware with brown or treacle smear glazing to the main part of the body and the rim. This makes a great background for the finely detailed cream sprigged decoration which shows a Horse and hounds hunting scene known as The Kill. The detail is excellent and the sprigging is crisp and defined. The jug is so clean inside that it appears to have never been used other than for decoration. 

It is in very good condition with just a stabilised crack around the lower part of the handle. It weighs 1536g and is a very decorative item for display or to add to any collection of antique jugs or pitchers or sprigged items.
