Large Red Ironstone Jar with Blue and Gold Decoration England Circa 1820


This exquisite English ironstone jar was made in the Regency period, circa 1820.
The marvelous deep red enamel contrasts beautifully with the blue chinoiserie decoration. The rich red and cobalt blue combination makes this jar so alluring. The domed lid is pierced with small holes to allow the jar to be used as a container for potpourri. A charming light blue lion dog finial sits atop the lid. On two sides of the hexagonal jar, we see large, brightly gilded face mask handles.

Dimensions: 22″ tall x 12.5″ across widest point x 8.25″ across the base

Condition: Very good: chips on the collar are invisibly restored, and some red enamel is invisibly painted in.

Background of Ironstone

In the early 19th century, ironstone was developed by potters in Staffordshire, England, as a stronger, more durable alternative to porcelain. It is similar to fine stoneware.
