Antique Pink Lustre Sprigged Jug by John Shorthose or Enoch Wood c 1815 Regency

Antique Pink Lustre Sprigged Jug by John Shorthose or Enoch Wood circa 1815 in the Regency Period 

Here we have a very collectable and attractive example of English lustreware dating from around 1815, the Regency period. This "Dutch" shaped jug or pitcher is made of pearlware and possible makers are John Shorthose who traded as Shorthose & Heath until 1815 and after that as Shorthose & Co until 1823, or perhaps Enoch Wood whose wares had similar sprigs. 

See the Fitzwilliam Museum online collection item C.79-1997 for a similarly shaped and decorated item. The jug is decorated with pink lustre glaze, produced by the addition of small amounts of gold, and decorated with neo-classical design white sprigs featuring goat-pulled chariots and cherubs. There is a classical urn sprig under the spout which has acanthus leaf detail. 

The jug stands approx 5 1/2 inches high and is approx 8 inches wide. It is in good antique condition with a little damage: Disguised chips to spout and rim, very minor loss to sprigged decoration, glaze rubbing and minor hairlines - see photos. It weighs 520g unpacked. 

This is a great item to add to any collection of antique lustreware or early 19th C jugs.
