Hi Alan, |
That is a lovely little jug. I checked in Berthod's CABINET OF CREAMERS, hoping to find a match. The four feet are quite distinctive That feature was found on only a small percentage of creamers identified. The applied handle and shape are also important to match. The closest shape I found was in Plate 936 with a floral pattern, and it is not exactly a match with yours, but the handle was close. It was described as Maker Unknown, a bulbous round bone china creamer with four moulded panels....not marked. So that describes the other features of the little jug. Yours is definitely Broseley pattern. Those pieces are rarely marked. When you are checking various makers, the four feet is usually the feature you can check most quickly. Rathbone made several Broseley patterns. None of the creamers have feet. The same with a Miles Mason shape book I looked at. Lots of Broseley patterns, but no creamers with feet. Sorry I can't give you a positive identification, but it is a lovely little jug!
