Antique Porcelain Syrup or Milk Jug Hand Painted Flowers


Brand Etsy

This is an antique milk jug or syrup made of fine porcelain. It is decorated with hand painted flowers on the front and back and with gold foliate and a gold bird - I assume that the gold is transfer printed, but may have been hand applied, Im unsure. The piece is unmarked, so Im also unsure of its origin - to me, it looks Prussian, but possibly French. The jug measures 5 1/4 in height to the top of the lids finial and has a bottom diameter of 3 1/8. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or wear - there is a small firing fissure to the inside lip, but this is original to the manufacture of the piece. This is a delicate piece of porcelain, very pretty and displays very wellbeautiful quality!
