This Weller Jap Birdimal jug measures 6" high by 5.25" in diameter. The Jap Birdimal line was designed by Frederick Hurten Rhead around 1903. This jug has a swollen form, with a jug handle. It is squeezebag decorated with a single crane in flight, in typical Rhead style. The rich lavender/pink glaze transitions to a gray with charcoal hues, and it is finished to a high mirror gloss. This jug is marked, and guaranteed to be vintage Weller, circa 1903. It is in original factory condition, with just fine generalized factory crazing. There are circle shadows in the photos, making it look like there are dark spots and glaze blemishes, but it is simply camera glare. The glaze finish is very smoothe and uniform, and presents very handsomely. You will not be disappointed!
