Subject:Kutani style large pitcher with dragon handle.
Posted By: Brandon mccloskey Mon, May 07, 2018 IP: 173.188.16.27

I dont believe this is actually Asian but done in an oriental style rather?
There is a roman G and the letter 13 stamped in the bottom. Just hoping someone could estimate a date and origin :)

Brandon,
Looking at the Imari colors and decoration I believe this to be an English piece.
Certainly not Kutani like.
But I've no idea about age or maker.
Martin.

Oh crap yeah sorry not kutani duhh, whoops. Yeah I'm leaning towards European I just couldn't find a single other example online or in any of my English porcelain books so I figured I post here to see if anyone hand any thoughts. Thank you Martin :)

Your pitcher or "jug" has decorative elements of older English ironstone, perhaps by Minton or Mason.

Best regards,

Thanks again Bill :)
As for now, I suppose it will remain a mystery because I have books on English and European porcelain and stoneware and was unable to find something to compare it too. Minton sure would be nice though huh? lol
