Description

Antique English Staffordshire drabware pitcher. This lovely pitcher was made by W. Ridgway and is dated Oct. 1, 1835. It is highly decorated with relief moulded designs and figures. There is an English pub scene with revelers and their dogs and a barmaid. There is a clock on the wall in the background that appears to show the time as almost midnight. The next scene shows a galloping horse with rider being chased by witches. The handle of the pitcher depicts a horse's tail being held by a witches hand. The scenes on this jug actually are scenes from the Robert Burns poem about Tam O'Shanter. The relief moulding is beautiful and quite detailed down to the weary horse's tongue hanging out. This pitcher measures approx. 9" tall and 7 1/2" across at the widest point on the handle. There is one 1" line on the back lower rim of the pitcher that appears to be a firing flaw where the pottery shrank in the original firing. The pitcher is sound and this does not appear to be damage. This is a lovely pitcher.
