See Hallmark and there is a "Y" which means 1887! I bought this for $10 at Redwood Gospel Thrift Store, They do so much to help people, with huge Thanksgiving day Feast for Homeless and people that are down on their luck, and also free haircuts, etc. I buy a lot from them and also donate to them. I got a lot of sterling silver but now they check better, and I am happy they do! This pitcher is 10 1/2" tall. I do not know what the red squiggly mark is? Is squiggly a word?haha maybe artist signature? This Co. did excellent job with marking their pieces!! Thanks for looking!!

    Kind of rustic look with antler handle, yet pretty!

    Fantastic tusk jug and what a deal!! I believe your squiggly mark is a James Hadley initial. I have noticed that his initial mark is sometimes a flambouyant swirl and sometimes a subdued squiggle as seen here. At one time James Hadley sold all of his works to Royal Worcester and scribed his initial on the base of the master pieces.

    petunialuvur thanks again! my email is I was wondering how many sizes they made of these tusk mugs, I think I read a giant one was made for a fair in US? Another time I read they made 3-4 different sizes of each model? I am trying to learn a little! And you seem to know a lot! Thanks again!!
