Description

In terms of novelty, they don’t come more novel than this double spout jug from Royal Bayreuth. Royal Bayreuth was a pottery founded in the 18th century in Bavaria, though this piece is later being on the cusp of the 19th and 20th centuries. They were known for more unusual designs and this double spout jug is no exception. Quite what one would need two spouts for on such a small jug is anyone’s guess but adding a small amount of water to two drams of scotch is one idea – it still may be too small and therefore more decorative in purpose than practical.

It is china and quite delicate and features a transfer printed Georgian (Hanovarian) style scene on one face and is gilt outlined, the main colourway being blush ivory and lilac (similar to Royal Worcester at the time). It has a large generous bulbous body and two wide pouring spouts. Fully marked with a stamp to the bottom.

Condition

Despite age this little jug is in tip top condition. Some minor rubbing to the gilding but the design, glaze and colourway are in tip-top condition
