Superb moulded relief stoneware wine Jug with Foliated sheep ram moulded handle. Very similar to the Ridgeways jugs of this type from circa 1835. Beautifully handcrafted with the Greco Roman god of wine Dionysus / Bacchus at the spout. This rare pitcher has scenes of Drinking and working cherubs.  the jug is in great condition with only a small crack down on the base and a hairline crack around the edge but un noticeable and doesn't effect the jug or its art work.
