An antique blue transfer 'Pure Milk' Pail
Regular price £1,500
A stunning Edwardian white ironstone pottery milk pail, decorated with an elaborate blue 'Pure Milk' under-glaze transfer. The highly stylised lettering is surrounded by a beautiful scrolling rococo design, wrapping around the whole of the front side of the pail.
A large and impressive example from the turn of the 20th century, marked on the underside with the blue transfer roundel for the Dairy outfit co ltd. Kings Cross, London.
280mm tall (11")
368mm rim diameter (14-1/2")
Professional restoration carried out on 3 or 4 hairlines and some chipping around the rim. Some glaze crazing in places, and fat stain lines on the inside commensurate with age. Very light wear to spots of the transfer, but overall very good.
