19th Century Chinese Export “Clobbered” Cider Jug

19th Century Chinese Export “Clobbered” Cider Jug


Chinese export porcelain covered cider jug, c. 1800.


Dimensions: Approximately 9½” tall (including lid and finial).



The underlying design of the jug is a typical blue and white scene with pavilions, a garden, a boat, mountains, and houses.


The lid has a gilt foo dog finial and the underlying design of the lid is similar.


Both the body and the lid have been overpainted, or “clobbered”, in vibrant designs and colors.

The base of each is unmarked.


In her book “European Decoration on Oriental Porcelain 1700 – 1830”, Helen Espir attributed this type of overdecoration to English artisans of the period 1780 -1830.
