A wonderful large English earthenware pitcher or jug, likely from the Staffordshire region, with an unusual decorative mix. Around the body of the jug is a raised rope design forming four 6-sided polygon frames, three of which have brown transferware images of what I speculate are English warriors, each image having a golden luster finish. (The fourth panel is where the handle joins the jug body.) At the rim of the pitcher, both inside and out, is a lovely brown lattice and t..

1988 edition of 'Indian Jewelry of the American Southwest' by William and Sarah Peabody Turnbaugh. Reference books is and always has been one of my weaknesses, and when I recently acquired a stack of books and magazines on Native American jewelry of the American Southwest, it included a copy of this book, which meant I now had (but don't need) two.With 95 numbered pages, the last few of which include a glossary, list of further reading, and price guide, this soft cover book p..
