Portsmouth Parish Infirmary banded white jug
An early 20thC banded white ironstone pitcher, produced by W. Adams & Sons for the Portsmouth Parish Infirmary. The face of the jug is decorated with a very scarcely seen belted blue transfer for the hospital, with the underside bearing the black armorial transfer mark for William Adams & Sons, England.
17.2cm tall (6-3/4")
15.2cm foot diameter (6")
21.5cm spout to handle (8-1/2")
Very good original condition with no chips or cracks. The 'ghosting' on the blue transfer has been there since manufacture. There is some sort of gritty glaze residue on the handle, but this does not affect it and it displays very well.
International customers and combined shipping
International buyers (outside of the UK) - When you add an item to your cart you can select a shipping destination and the postage will be calculated. Usually this is correct, but for multiple purchases and larger items it is advisable to enquire before purchasing, as shipping is based on rough estimates to different regions and may vary to that stated. You may 'buy it now' with the shipping cost calculated, but if this is incorrect we may contact you after purchase. We will either issue a refund for the difference, or request for a remaining postage balance to be paid, either way we will always contact you before any changes are made. Our standard postage costs include tracking where possible and usually require a signature upon receipt, please also include a contact phone number when ordering. Postage to P.O. boxes must be enquired about before purchase as many shippers do not deliver to them.
*Multiple purchases - If you would like to purchase multiple items we can usually combine shipping. It is best to message us first for a shipping quote, but to avoid missing out you can purchase items through the website immediately without paying a shipping fee. Add the desired pieces to your cart, then view your cart and in order summary there is a drop down menu with postage options. Select *Multiple purchases & combined shipping* and the shipping price will be removed. You can now pay for your selected items and we will contact you with a shipping quote to then be paid separately.
