An early Susie Cooper studio ware 'Orchids' pattern M72 jug in light brown, green, yellow and dark brown underglaze enamel colours. A lovely low squat shape, these hand painted studio pots were very much a favourite of Miss Cooper's and were often a prototype for later lithograph designs. In excellent condition - no chips, cracks or restoration. Rare to find, especially in such good order. Hand painted Susie Cooper signature, 1932 and M72 in brown enamel. Height 8cm (3.1in), overall width 12.75cm (5in)
