The ornate naturalistic foliate handle twines around the body and the neck at both terminals, which are long and scrolling tendrils, giving a very pleasing decorative effect
This ewer made by Royal Worcester and bearing their standard printed mark in green on the base which includes the date letter V, for 1884. There are also impressed marks including the shape number 953 and potter's marks.

This elegant piece has a little damage - there are two old restored chips at the foot rim and another at the tip of a heart shaped leaf on the front of the jug, please see the last two images. Despite this, the ewer displays well and is a great item for any collector and is a very decorative example from this highly regarded maker.
