19th Century Victorian Majolica Owl Jug

Lot 0131 Details

Description
There is something endearing about the almost flat faces and the eerie, yet intellectual presence of owls. 19th century potters turned out very decorative examples of this bird in various forms. Pitchers and jugs in the form of the bird were especially popular and made in all sizes.; This owl is standing on a naturalistic base with a large flower stalk and a flower rising up and winding around to create the handle. The lone flower sits on the top where one’s thumb rests; an unusual way to incorporate a handle into the figure.; In this nice example, the color combination is exceptionally pretty. The feathers are picked out in brown on the wings, back and head, while the breast feathers are cream with pink. The artist was creative in painting the feathers around the eyes in turquoise blue and edged with pink. The inside of the jug was painted totally in pink. Since the top of the jug flares out, one can enjoy this pink inside as well as the other colors on the outside. All the colors harmonize well with one another to make a very interesting and pretty piece of Victorian majolica.; The owl is in excellent overall condition for its age. There is fine crazing under the glaze, which is consistent with this type of pottery. There is a very small, old chip on the left side in the green grass near the base. Underneath the jug and toward the edge is a very old chip that has darkened; where this lies necessitates picking up the jug to see it.; It measures about 10-1/4 inches high on one side. The depth at the base is 5-1/2 inches, and it is 6-1/2 inches from the front to the handle.
