This is quality, and not quantity! The cobalt blue leaf patterns on a sand coloured background, highlighted with white beads, make this a lively piece of classic early Doulton Lambeth.
The 5.25 in (13cm) jug has the impressed Doulton Lambeth rosette with the date 1887 underneath. It is signed by the designer Emily Stormer, and numbered 632 by her. The jug weighs 284g.
There are no chips, cracks or restoration – just as it left the kiln! It's interesting to note that Ms Stormer left out 4 beads at the base of the handle!
