Description:

Doulton Lambeth Salt-glaze Cream Jug, dated 1874, by Emily J. Edwards, with ear handle and globular body incised with brown and blue leaves and applied flowerhead, on a circular foot, ht. 5 1/4 in.
Note: Emily Edwards was one of the first women designers and decorators at the Lambeth Studios. According to John Sparkes, "her work is ornament made up of an ingenious mixture of classical or conventional forms with natural growths...often gave indication of close study of antique methods of decoration". As she died at an early age, her work is much more rare than other designers. See Eyles, Desmond, The Doulton Lambeth Wares, London, 1975.
Estimate $400-600

Very good condition; firing flaws around handle.
