Vintage Pottery Floral Bird and Branch Jug by Portland Pottery Cobridge PPC
This is a very unusual Vintage Portland Pottery Cobridge PPC Floral Bird Branch Jug . It was made in the 1940s/50s.
PPC (Portland Pottery Corbridge) were an Earthenware manufacturer (1946-53) based at Cobridge, Staffordshire UK. They were taken over by Ridgeways in 1953.
This jug would make a great vase for dried flowers. It takes the form of a square brick cream/white bird bath with an embossed plant (possibly ‘Morning Glory’) growing up the side, with the stem forming the jug handle. A yellow and green bird sits on top of the stem (handle) and another bird is embossed at the bottom of the water bath.
The vase is in reasonable vintage condition, with no chips or restoration. However, it has developed a stress crack, as indicated in the image below, and will no longer hold water without leaking. For this reason, the vase price has been reduced to £14.99.
The maker’s mark on the base is as follows:
9.5ins (23.5cm) High
4.5ins (11cm.) square base.
