This amazing stoneware jug has sprigged-on figures and hieroglyphs of ancient Egyptian culture. It was made by Doulton Lambeth, and the Rd. No. 121031 dates the design to 1889. (This specific piece may have been made a few years later... say, to 1905.)
The spout is sculpted in the form of the Pharoah, and the figures are gods of the various provinces, bringing the plenty of their land, such as live and dead game birds, crops, and so on. Beneath the handle attached is a winged scarab beetle.
No nicks, chips, hairlines, or repairs.
