Antique Wedgwood majolica pottery jewelled caterers jug - What tho my Cates be poor - Shakespeare - circa 1865 Victorian 19.7cm H 1 1/2 pints 724g

An antique mid Victorian Wedgwood manganese purple majolica glazed "Caterers" jug or pitcher of slender tapering cylindrical form with relief moulded decoration designed by Frederick Brett Russell for the Shakespeare tercentenary in 1864. The moulded design consists of three rows of "jewelled" decoration between four lyrical bands or straps. The large 3/4 inch long oval turquoise coloured cabochon shaped "jewels" have relief moulded manganese purple coloured faux settings.

There is an applied, ribbed and slightly domed pewter hinged lid with a hinged thumb lift. The pouring lip is a short yellow and blue triangular shaped pouring spout with faux shield shaped terminals or mounts; a loop handle with a turquoise jewelled thumb rest and low relief moulded wheat head highlighted in yellow glaze. The interior of the jug has the same bright turquoise glaze and a capacity of about 1 1/2 pints.

The low relief bands in the form of coopered hoops are painted with a blue ground and yellow enamelled beading and have low relief Gothic capital lettering picked out in dark orange enamel: - 

'What tho my cates be poor 
take them in good part,
may you have better cheer
but not with better heart'. 

An excerpt from Shakespeare's "Comedy of Errors" Act 3, scene 1.

The base is impress marked Wedgwood, GC 12 and has a hand painted pattern number 674 over 2 This is a very decorative and collectable piece of antique majolica pottery dating from the mid 19th century circa 1865 - in the Victorian period. 

The jug or pitcher is in good antique condition with the usual crazing to the glaze, some very minor marking to the enamel on the top of the handle caused by the lid and some minor rubbing  to the enamel, glaze flake to the handles, commensurate with the age and use. There are two short tight stabilised cracks to the rim on the right hand side. Please see the images.
