Porcelain Wine Ewer and Lid Jug Pitcher Faux Cane Body Antique Victorian C 1850


A porcelain low relief moulded faux wood and cane lidded wine ewer dating from around 1850. It has a faux staved wooden body with simulated strap retaining bands and faux cane style handle. The the round dome shaped removable lid has a bud style knop.

The elegant classically shaped body of the jug has a raised front strainer and a rear retaining lug to help hold the lid in place. The inside of the spout has a built in fifteen hole strainer. Some collectors may call this a jug or pitcher. We have seen them also described as a tisaniere jug and cover. The ewer is of a rounded baluster form with transfer printed  and hand coloured floral sprays.

The ewer is unmarked apart from a hand painted pattern number 7116 and a painters mark to the base.  The maker is currently unknown may possibly be by Minton, but, Wedgwood, Ridgway, Davenport and a number of other manufacturers produced this type of ware. It is a very handsome item and in good antique condition with stabilised crack around the base visible from inside, there is a tiny chip to the rim of the lid. A highly decorative item.
