Hard paste or true porcelain jug with floral decorations. The mark combining the Bristol X and the Plymouth mark indicates that it was made in the transition period between Bristol and Plymouth, Richard Champion's factory (1770-1773) replacing William Cookworthy's Bristol factory (1768-1770). Handpainted decoration shows the few colours which would stand high temperatures of hard paste glazing, namely rust-red, purple and a sage green.
