    I haven't been able to find out much about this one, it's on a known Doulton Series Ware Jug base but the colour & pattern are almost unheard of.
    I found similar examples with Egyptian Revival style decoration but not Greek.
    Any further information appreciated.

      I have seen this shape with Roman figures and Egyptian figures before but not this Greek one.
      These colours are gorgeous!

      @TallCakes bravo you, that's quite a bit better than I managed, the closest I got was that it was a standard "Series Ware" shape & that they did do figures from ancient cultures but that's the exact same jug except for the colour!
      It did cross my mind that perhaps the colouration was something a former owner had mistakenly done to it (using the wrong chemical cleaner for instance) but it doesn't look worn like one would assume it would in that case & I cannot imagine what would make that beige/earthenware colour turn such bright pink.
      I'm going to chalk it up to someone in the Doulton factory feeling a little bit adventurous thus creating what might very well be a one off!

      A lot of ones with Egyptian and Etruscan women, but I have seen the egyptian greek women far less or even may be Etruscan style. This one could also be confused with the etruscan style Wedgwood started making these fantastic creations as far back as the 1790's with their line and made in stylized collecting as Thomas Hope collection of ancient ones was the best for English collecting during the very early Regency style he was promoting as he was alive at that time!~

      @PhilDMorris I marvel at the Regency period, such timeless style and zest for what at the time were constantly new and exotic goods and styles.
      Josiah Wedgewood in particular is a fascinating one, almost single handedly responsible for the industrialization of the "Potteries" (i.e. turning a cottage industry into a science & subsequently an art) and among his great many other accomplishments, he was Grandfather of Charles Darwin of Theory of Evolution fame!!
