Doulton Lambeth Rd. No. 4817 Stoneware Jug Adv. Special Old Irish Whiskey /Rare!
- Source: eBay
I have here what could be a rare find on a 1/2 gallon stoneware jug showing a raised relief applied figure of a woman that appears to be feeding a pig which is slightly behind her. At the top of her is Special and below the figure is, Old Irish Whiskey. This jug is nicely designed and has a darker brown at the top of the spout and a shaded handle. The jug is brown and lightly shaded around. The bottom is marked, Doulton Lambeth Rd. No. 4817. There are a couple of hallmarks I cannot make out. There are initials within. There are a few factory imperfections. One looks like a deep chip but observing it under a loupe it looks to be in the mfg. process. There is another one where the piece has not separated but one can see the imperfection. There are no cracks. I think the cork is original. The jug measures 7 1/4" high and 6 1/4" across the middle. This neat jug is being offered as found with NO RESERVE. Buyer to pay 12.00 US mail shipping. Payment expected within 5 days of end of sale. Thanks!!
