    A really pretty little piece, superbly painted with a multitude of charmingly rendered floral details. A sparrow-beak jug with very similar decorative style is illustrated as plate 107 of "Bow Porcelain" by Elizabeth Adams and David Redstone. This naturalistic (Meissen-based) style of decoration appears to have come into being in or around 1758-9. 

    Though unmarked, this is a known Bow shape. See the photo of a similar piece for sale with the highly regarded Scottish Antiques.

    In generally very good condition. The cover has had minor restoration, as has the rim of the pot. It seems as though there may have been restoration to the spout of a minor nature and there is a small nick to the tip of the spout. Wear commensurate with age and use.

    We do not offer combined postage as the figure we charge reflect the time taken to pack and source packaging material which is incredibly time-consuming. Ultimately, it is the combined price which reflects the true cost.

    See our other items. If you like what you see, we do have other items that are not necessarily listed and which may be of interest.

    We use recycled packaging. It helps our environmental footprint, but does not necessarily look very pretty!

    If the postage policy specifies that postage is included, we will send by tracked postage, rather than tracked and signed. If you wish for the latter, please let us know. There will be an additional charge which we will notify to you.

    When we send by tracked alone the item will be at your risk from the point that we can prove, by means of showing a delivery confirmation, that it was delivered to your premises. Until that point, the item will be at our risk.

    We are prepared to deliver all over the world, except (for obvious reasons, given the Russian state's  unprovoked acts of aggression in Ukraine) to Russia.

    We aim to ensure that our descriptions are absolutely accurate. Nevertheless, antique porcelain is never perfect. We use high definition photography with the aim of making the condition of any item extremely clear. Defects which are obvious in the photography we use are deemed to have been declared, even if we do not specifically refer to them in the description. 

    Restoration is sometimes extremely difficult to detect. We use UV light and transmitted light to check whether restoration has occurred. Sometimes, even those methodologies do not reveal restoration. If you are able, notwithstanding the definition, to show that restoration of a significant nature has occurred, we would obviously allow cancellation of the sale in such circumstances.
