I visited my favourite stall on the market this morning, and immediately spotted a Wedgwood Jasperware Candlestick I wanted, but I had a good look round the rest of the stall, and I saw the top of this jug in a box he hadn't unpacked yet. It looked a bit like Jasperware so I asked him if I could look at it. It turns out it is Doulton Lambeth Silicon Ware, though the handle has been broken and stuck back on with glue. He let me have it for free, with the candlestick, and I must say I love it. It is glazed inside, and it feels wonderful, and you can see the marks the potter made. I can't find a Doulton piece with these Cherubs / Cupids, but each one is slightly different. It is 7" tall and 4" across the base. It has good marks on the base, and I think the date 1882. The other marks could be Potters marks. I can see a g 00 and a t 00, but I'm not sure what that stands for.
