Elizabeth Fisher - a 9.5in (23.5cm) lidded Doulton Lambeth jug
A finely and elaborately decorated Doulton Lambeth lidded jug, by one of the designers that started in the early 1870's and who between them set Doultons on the road to being a leader in the field of design.
The jug has the impressed Doulton Lambeth mark and the date 1880 underneath. It also has the incised monograms of Elizabeth Fisher and her assistant, Harriet Hibbut, and Elizabeth Fisher's design number 201. The lidded jug weighs 606g.
The jug is in excellent condition without chips cracks or restoration, but the lid has suffered. It was originally silver-plated, but a fairer description now would be 'burnished'
