Worcester Milk Jug, Waisted Shanked Moulded Body, 'Cornflower' Decoration, 'Flight & Barr' period, c1795

 

A most attractive Worcester milk jug of the 'Flight & Barr' period, c1795. The jug is of the 'waisted' spiral shanked moulded form and elegantly decorated with a cornflower pattern in green, blue and red enamels.

There is a gilt band running round the outer rim of the jug just below the cornflower border. The rim of the jug is also gilded.

  

The top of the pouring lip is decorated with the same Cornflower garland that runs around the rim of the jug.
