Eric Knowles Comments
Compared with the usual Worcester milk jug and cover this cream jug represents a rare shape also found as part of their cabaret sets but with a simpler loop handle. The actual form shows a French influence borrowing elements from the Sevres 'pot a lait a trois pieds' introduced in 1752 albeit the Worcester version is minus three feet and of a less bulbous form.
For a Worcester Jug of identical form, decoration and also unmarked See: The Marshall Collection of Worcester Porcelain in the Ashmolean Museum , Sword Rosalind. Page 446, No 746.
