LARGE DOULTON ART WARE BRANDY BARREL.
A superb large art-ware multi coloured stoneware barrel which is advertising Brandy. Produced in a blue, green and brown glaze with plaque to front with description of contents, BRANDY and highlighted with sprigs or barley, wheat and corn. This beautiful barrel would probably have been originally displayed in a bar of a hotel, up market public house or perhaps a wine merchant and dates to about 1885. The barrel is in mint condition other than one small a very insignificant flake from one of the sprigs.This really is a beautiful Doulton barrel, probably the finest example i have owned.
