1950s Myott Doric Jug in the 5.75 inch size variant on a white ceramic. The jug was hand decorated in 1957 by an artist called E. Oldham. These jugs were produced in 2 other size varieties though not necessarily by E. Oldham. Though the shape of these Lemonade/Cider Jugs - as they are also knowm - is from the Art Deco period of the Thirties, the design is that of a cross between 1950s retro and Art Deco and perhaps is bridging a gap between the two significant art movements. The jug is primarily painted in an intricate floral pattern with birds and spots.

The Cider Jug is marked fully to the base with the later MYOTT ENGLAND incised mark in an arc with the BY stamp and also a batch number 36. The jug is in excellent condition with very strong paintwork

This Cider/Lemonade Jug would make an excellent present for someone born in 1957.

I am currently researching this style of Myott ware produced in the 1950s. Please use the contact page to send in any information relating to 1950s hand decorated wares especially those of E. Oldham.
