This is a fine little Victorian Jug made by EF Bodley & Co., at the Scotian Pottery manufacture in the early 1860s. The building had originally been the Burslem workhouse, but was converted by James Vernon into a pottery.
This little jug is a very rare one and also in quite fantastic condition given that it is now 150 years old.
The decoration is transfer printed and possibly shows pots and various ceramic wares that might have been seen on display at the Great Exhibition in 1861. There are touches of colour on the design which has been hand applied to the printed decoration.
A very fine and rare early piece from this company and probably an example for the specialist collector.
