Ewer c1865 Maker: Twigg  Pattern:Orchard
Ewer c1865
This pattern is usually associated with Joseph Twigg & Bros of Newhill Pottery and Kilnhurst Pottery, Yorkshire active 1822 to 1881. A charming design of a gentleman up a ladder picking apples with his children below and lady watching from a rustic bench. Here printed in a slightly deeper blue than usual. No backstamp, so the attribution to Twigg cannot be certain. A little wear and discolouration to the rim and handle and elsewhere some manufacturing blemishes.
Dimensions: 3.75 ltr, 28 cm high / 6.25 pint, 11 ins high

Ewer and Bowl c1870 Maker: Twigg  Pattern:Orchard
Ewer and Bowl c1870
An unusual pattern on this ewer and bowl, with a superb border made up of vignettes showing baskets of apples and grapes, and rustic scene of three figures in a small boat on a lake. It is usually associated with Joseph Twigg & Bros of Newhill Pottery and Kilnhurst Pottery, Yorkshire active 1822 to 1881. The charming central design is of a gentleman up a ladder picking apples with his children below and wife watching from a rustic bench. This appears to be a fairly late manifestation as the printing plates are worn and it is printed in a pale blue rather than the darker blue favoured in earlier years. No maker's backstamp, so the attribution to Twigg cannot be certain. The bowl is crazed with some surface scratching and minor discolouration inside, mainly to the base. Underneath the bowl appear to be a couple of hairlines, but these do not go through to the inside. The ewer has a few signs of age, and light all over crazing with just a touch of discolouration inside and to the handle, and has a hairline to the spout, but overall has fared pretty well over the years and is still bright.
Dimensions: Ewer 27.5 cm high, bowl 35 cm diameter, 11 cm high / Ewer 10.75 ins high, bowl 13.75 diameter 4.25 high
