A pretty hand painted Art Deco milk jug, manufactured by Sampson Smith Ltd (established 1864), under the name Old Royal China, Longton Staffordshire Potteries, England, dating to circa 1930’s. The upper part of the milk jug is decorated with brown coloured branching out trees and pretty hand painted yellow and orange summer garden flowers. A yellow central ring divides the pattern sequence with the lower part of the milk jug decorated with crazy garden paving creating a wholistic garden look and feel. The rim is gilded and gently scalloped with the gilding extending to the elegant hooped handle. A good size perfect for serving milk, cream or gravy.
Milk jug diameter from tip to handle 12cm
Condition: In very good condition: Good bright intact colours. Perfect gilding. A few firing spots inside the milk jug which is commensurate with older china. ( Click on About Our China for more details on condition).
