Kensington Pottery Jug
Kensington Pottery was based in Burslem in the heart of the Potteries in Staffordshire. The company was founded in 1922 and worked from a factory in Hanley initially. They moved to Burslem in 1937 and this jug dates from that second location of production, identified by the Staffordshire Knot backstamp bearing the initials KPB (B for Burslem) rathen than KPH (H for Hanley) . The company existed until 1961 when they were incorporated with another manufacturer and became known as Price Kensington.
Owing to the shape and decoration fo this jug I think it probably dates to the late 1930s. The impressed mark on the base of the jug reads Made in England Hall. I presume that Hall was the name for the pattern form of the jug. The green wavy line decoration is applied by hand and then the final glaze has an opalescent finish to it.
In good condition with no chips or cracks.
Diameter (at base): 7cm max.
