About

Worcester’s famous cabbage-leaf moulded jugs were known in factory records as ‘Dutch jugs’. They were made with and without spouts moulded in the form of a human face. This large example with a yellow ground has rural scenes printed in lilac and painted in colours. The scenes (‘Milking scene’, ‘The milkmaids’ and ‘The rural lovers’) are all based on engravings by Robert Hancock. The last was copied by Hancock from a print published by Francis Vivares in 1760 after a painting by Thomas Gainsborough.
