Antique American Historical Staffordshire Jug Lafayette
Item Details
Description
To commemorate General Lafayette's return to the United States in 1824, several Staffordshire Potteries created dinner and tea sets showing aspects of the visit and aimed for the American market. One of the most popular of these various patterns was "Lafayette at Franklin's Tomb." It shows a seated Lafayette next to a monument with an urn on the top; the monument reads "Franklin." There is a temple-like structure in the distance in front of the rising sun and a ship (supposedly the Cadmus, the ship that brought Lafayette to this county. The jug is deep cobalt blue in color with a floral border. It measures about 6" high and the handle to spout distance is 7 ½". There are no maker's marks on this piece (except a printed "36"), but it is well documented that Enoch Wood & Sons made this pattern for export. The jug is in very fine restored condition. The glaze is shiny and the color and incredibly deep cobalt blue. This piece has had relatively minor restoration: there were some chips/nibbles at the tip of the spout that have been corrected and a chip in the foot rim that has been restored. The restoration is excellent and virtually unnoticeable. The white spots in the transfer (other than the flash bounce) are underglaze skips in the transfer, something that happened in the making (it was not easy trying to affix the inky tissue paper to the unfired pottery and sometimes, the tissue tore!). A more than acceptable example of this popular and important American Historical Staffordshire jug.
