A great desirable form made for the American market, this especially attractive strap-handled cider jug is meticulously hand-rendered in the Sepia Fitzhugh pattern, bearing an inscribed roundel under the spout bearing the initial “H”for HONE. From a service ¬†made for John Hone II on the occasion of his marriage to Marie Antoinette Kane in 1818. The family’s history is fully discussed in New York and the China Trade, page 116. Restoration to a chip to the rim of the cover, otherwise, very good condition with a foo lion finial with great detail and personality-a piece of sculpture in miniature. 10 1/2″ tall. Circa 1820.
