Vintage Handpainted Jug - Pattern 8166 - Grays Pottery - Susie Cooper

Hand painted buff coloured jug by Grey's Pottery. It has the later Pharaoh's boat version of the backstamp used between 1935 & 45 but on an unfamiliar colourway, this one being red and yellow flowers with what appear to be gooseberries, with a red rim and handle. My reliable internet authority has contacted me suggesting that it is floral pattern 8166, dating originally from 1928 and possibly by Susie Cooper. The later backstamp explained by it probably being a replacement piece from the company's matching service. Some ingrained crazing and a little colour wear plus a short hairline crack on the inside beneath the yellow flower. Still looks nice though.
