Rare Graduated Set of 3 Adams & Bromley Obelisk Jugs c.1877
Height of largest jug: 22cm
The four sided body each with an obelisk, the corners with a geometric band.
The obelisk pattern was designed by Adams & Bromley to commemorate the two ancient Egyptian obelisks being bought to London and New York in 1877. The London obelisk was set on Embankment.
Adams & Bromley majolica is excellent quality. They produced a wide range of Majolica with titles such as 'Pineapple', 'Water Lily', 'Apple & Pears' and 'Corn'.
Their modelling is crisp and glazes very bright. When Adams & Bromley majolica pieces are grouped together, they form a very cohesive and decorative collection.
Adams & Bromley Majolica look especially good displayed together.
