SOLD ITEM 10870 - The Mariners Arms pink splash luster pitcher

There are 12 images of this item.
Antique English pottery pink splash luster, or lustre, pitcher. The jug is decorated with underglaze transfer prints of two sailors and their ship with the Mariners' Arms motto 'Deus Debit Vela' (God Will Fill the Sails); the Mariners' Compass; and 'The Sailor's Tear'. Newcastle or Garrison Pottery, Sunderland, Northeast England. Circa 1820-30. Note the rare addition of yellow paint in the decoration. Measures 6.75" high x 9.5" wide overall. A great deal of lustre ware comes from the port of Sunderland, so that name has stuck. Transfer printing on lustre jugs was thought to have originated at the Battersea enamel works. The design is engraved on a copper plate, from which prints are taken on paper; these prints are then pressed on to the ware. It is then protected by a glaze. Most lustre ware is unmarked. Ex. G. H. Baecker collection.
