A GIANT Sharpe Bro's advertising Jug

A huge ironstone pottery jug in a wonderful decorative yellow slip. With level markings on the inside, a tip handle on the front and royal appointment crests to each side in under-glaze blue transfer print.

Above the tip handle on the front is the makers transfer mark of Sharpe Bro's, Made in England. Possibly made for shop display... as the weight of it when full might be too heavy to lift!

356mm tall (14")
356mm handle to spout (14")
267mm diameter (10-1/2")

Good original condition with no damage. Glaze crazing and light usage wear, there is a glaze fault/slip on the rim (white mark) but this is original and not damage, only a firing fault in manufacture.

Please note: This is a very heavy and large piece of pottery, please bear this in mind when enquiring about shipping.
