Jumbo Influenced Early White Ironstone
This early English White Ironstone Ewer was created by Henry Alcock in 1890. He named this shape Jumbo for PT Barnum's huge famous circus elephant.
This pitcher has a lovely graceful shape and a wonderful embossed daisy pattern on both sides of the top and bottom of the handle. The handle is what makes this ewer quite special with its elephant thumb rest - Jumbo.
The Jumbo shape is a favorite with collectors of early English White Ironstone!
