I put a bid in at charity shop for a group of seven jugs. Now I was only interested in three of them and when I won the bid I donated the other four vases back to the store. It was funny as when I went in she had the three picked out that I wanted to take home. I told her she was good, she told me she knows exactly what I like!!!
Here are the three jugs I brought home:
It was the one on the right that caught my eye and it is a Hancock's Ivory Ware jug probably for the 1930's, if my research is correct and the back stamp is right:
I would love to know what 794 1 A means, it's probably something to do with the pattern number and who painted it???
The middle one also has a back mark on it:
It's not worth much but it's pretty. The one on the left has no mark at all, and will now be called the bramble jug, as it has brambles/blackberries on it.
All in all they are a deal to my mind at $18 for all three, so I am happy.
By the way I have a feeling dd will be wanting the Hancock's Jug as she has just bought an orange accent chair to go in her living room, and her other colours are green and brown in there, so this jug would fit in perfectly!!! Remind me to hide it when she comes over!!
