BROWNWARE THREE BLIND MICE JUG

We are going to include on a regular basis a number of unusual items of pottery and are asking for feedback from other collectors and visitors to the TPCS web site about the origin of these items.   Also whether there are other pieces of similar pottery which have been seen or are owned by visitors to this web site.

We are showing a number of illustrations of this unmarked jug which we can attribute to the Aller Vale Pottery due to the shape being identical to other jugs marked with No.154 pattern.   The applied mouldings which are commonly known as ‘Sprigging’ or ‘Relief Moulding’, are of the Three Blind Mice.   As the photos show there is also ‘Sprigged’ moulding under the handle of the jug.

We have also illustrated another similar Aller Vale pot which is a copy of the Royal Doulton ‘Drinking Scene’ jug.    We would like further feedback from anyone who has a similar ‘Nursery Rhyme’ type piece and also anyone who has a marked example of this ‘Brownware’.

Please email any photos or comments to the webmaster, webmaster@torquaypottery
