Victorian wedgwood Raspberry cordial dispenser
Regular price £750
A fantastically rare early VIctorian white ironstone raspberry cordial dispenser by wedgwood, with its original lid and Nichols & co Manchester tap.
Made for a bar or shop, it is decorated with a relief raspberry and leaves on the top, hand painted gold lettering and simple green foliate surround, finished nicely with scalloped handles and tap surround. It is difficult to date exactly from the marks the year of manufacture, but it is likely to be 1860-1891, after which England was added for the export market.
