Charlotte Rhead HJ Wood Bursleyware Jug – Unrecorded Arabesque Pattern



A rare Charlotte Rhead design, produced for HJ Wood (Bursleyware) in the early 1940s. The jug is in a pattern previously unseen, (with no TL number) – carrying the bespoke ‘Arabesque by Charlotte Rhead’ backstamp. The tube-lined decoration of a stylized Taoist symbol is enamelled in green, below a greek key border on a mottled white ground with lower yellow band.

It measures approx 21cm tall. Marked to the reverse side as shown.

Good overall condition – crazing is visible throughout, but no chips, cracks or restoration. Some enamel loss in places.
