Gaudy Welsh Jugs
Although referred to as Gaudy Welsh most of the production of this style of ceramics took place in Staffordshire. The style owes much to both Chinoiserie and Imari and is achieved by hand in a free but expressive style. The coloured glazes used across these two jugs are typical of those used on Gaudy Welsh ware.
Both of the jugs probably date from roughly the first quarter of the twentieth-century. The larger one has crazed glazing but otherwise both are in good condition with no chips or cracks. They would make a superb container for a jug of custard, or . . . of an equally cheering yellow, a bunch of short stemmed narcissi or daffodills.
