Century, Brown Stoneware Jug Pitcher with incised and raised Flowers and black buttons with a gold gilt in lines and a gold wash over the flowers which also have a glossy glaze and handle. I found a similar Item on pg 31 in book "Collector's Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain".

This is Pre-Owned a few times over in 100 plus years of use and display and it is in GREAT Condition, for its age. It has a few minor production issues, dimples and mold flaws at spout and on rim.
Both have gold gilt into the misshaped edge. There is a tiny nick on edge of rim, light wear to base and slight wear to gold wash on flowers and rim.
