Beautiful Arts And Crafts Fish Jug Brannams Pottery 1896 Fish Art Nouveau For Sale

Beautiful Arts And Crafts Fish Jug Brannams Pottery 1896 Fish Art Nouveau

This is for a beautiful oldarts and crafts jug from 1896. The jug is made by Brannam pottery of Devon, and ithas avery definite arts and crafts appearance with the lovely oceanic themes that were the prevalent style forhandicrafts from southern England at that time. Thejugs spout is actually fashioned as a fish head and all the handpainted decoration around the dug depicts seaweed and the ocean floor. There is also a very stylised fish depicted and this sits next to a verse that reads 'From rocks and sands and barren lands good fortune set me free, and from great guns and women's tongues, good lord deliver me'....i am not sure of the origin of this verse, i had a little look around, it seems it might be a fragment of a soldiers poem.The jug is fully marked on the base, it reads 'Brannam 1896'...and there is another word in the middle i am not sure about, its possibly the potter and i cant make it out clearly Barnum...Burnam...Banum???...its difficult to read.The jugis in excellent condition, i have been over it and the only flaw i can find is a tiny tinylittle nick to the glaze inside the fishes mouth...it is otherwise superb and it displays magnificently.It measures 165mm across and stands 140mm tall.
