This is a highly collectable little piece of antique Scottish Art Pottery.

I really love this little miniature jug. It is a very intricate painterly pattern - the white Prunus blossoms set against a vivid blue sky are so beautiful and makes me think of Japanese prints.

It is one of many of my Mak Merry pieces in my online shop. 

I have taken lots of images for your inspection. 

 It is in excellent condition with no damages. 

It is signed and dated 1922 - so now officially an antique! 

It is a quite tiny little jug - very sweet! It measures 2 1/2 inches in height and from spout to handle it is 3 1/4 inches

UK Posting is going to be £4.95 - and this is with Royal Mail Recorded Delivery. This will be applied at the checkout. 

HISTORY: The MakMerry pottery grew out of the Scottish Women's Rural Institute, which was founded in 1917 in the Scottish town Macmerry by Catherine Blair.

Catherine had previously been an active Suffragist, campaigning for 'Votes for Women' and had a history of promoting female independence and equality. She became involved in the suffragette movement was by writing countless letters to the press about the plight of women.

In 1920 MakMerry was set up as the trading arm of the Institute. Initially, members invested small sums of money and produced food items for sale – but they soon moved into producing fine craftworks as well – one of the crafts was pottery decoration. They hand-painted smaller household items such as plates, shallow bowls, lidded pots and the sweetest teapots – and all these are instantly identifiable and often featured delicate and stylized floral patterns.
