'Pompeii' Shape Jugs

Pattern 153

 

Plain Stone

The jug is 146mm tall.

Note the impressed "24" on the base. This is the number in a 'potter's dozen', and it relates to the size (the smaller the number, the larger the jug), and the way it is invoiced out from the factory (if you bought a dozen of 24s you would get 24 jugs).

The Urn & Anchor mark, with "W. RIDGWAY & Co." on a ribbon below, would appear to be sprigged on and only occurs on a few of the early jugs.

Plain Blue

The jug is 264mm tall including lid.

The impressed "4" on the base means you would get only 4 of these large jugs to the dozen.

The impressed mark on the opposite side of the base to the number occurs on several William Ridgway moulded jugs. It may be a form of tally mark.

Pattern 60

This pattern has orange highlights, so would presumably have been slightly cheaper than pattern 33.
