1950s HJ Wood Staffordshire Model 794 Coloured Striped Jug
This is a beautiful 1950s HJ Wood Staffordshire Model 794 Coloured Striped Jug/ Pitcher. The pattern number is possibly 1932.
The pastel coloured stripes are still quite vibrant in yellow, turquoise, green, pink and lilac. After a trawl of the internet, I have managed to find another jug in the same shape but different colour way. They must be quite difficult to find.
The jug/ pitcher is in very good vintage condition with no cracks, chips or restoration. There is some crazing commensurate with age.
The HJ Wood back stamp post 1947.
