In addition, upper & lower handle terminals are highlighted with heavy cobalt accents. Theres an old cork is firmly lodged in the mouth.

Salt-glazed exterior; presumably Albany or Mineral Slip interior. Condition : Very Good++ to Excellent overall. This Jug survives in remarkable, essentially as-made condition with exceptional color, charming size and desirable makers mark. Some minor imperfections to note : There are contact and/or stack marks, in-the-making, noted on L/R shoulder and upper handle. Also, right side (mid-body) a stone ping or production/contact scar, as shown.

The Tulip has just a touch of fry on the heaviest areas of the decoration (see close-ups). Base with expected wear and soiling including small perimeter flakes. No cracks, repaired damage, restoration work or other excuses. Displays brilliantly; highly-appropriate for any C&W enthusiast, especially if condition and color is of utmost importance to your collection.

See photos for complete details and close-ups. Please consider them as part of the description. Highly sought-after 1-Gallon capacity; measures only 11H x 6-1/2W overall with base diameter of 6-1/4.
