A Pretty Wade Jug Decorated with a Rabbit and Bird
This is a gorgeous example of Wade Heath's Rabbit and Bird Pitcher called Spring Time set in a woodland scene. It is the rarer example with the light coloured Oak tree with leaves and branches growing upwards with wild flowers at the base. The little rabbit is walking through the grass and the mother bird is feeding her young birds in the nest above. This jug was probably made in or around 1930. It has some very fine crazing in the glaze which is barely noticeable, and has no chips or cracks that I can see. I am trying to de-clutter a bit, and though I love this and have had it many years I do not have enough room for it now. It will be a nice addition to anyone who loves rabbits, nature in general or who collects Wade or Jugs. It measures approximately 88 inches high (20 cms, and is also nearly 8 inches across from lip to handle.
If it costs less to post I will refund you part of the excess allowing a little for packing and transport.
