That is great thank you. I just need to identify the pattern number and I will get back to you shortly.
This vase dates from C.1897. around the time when James Hadley (1837 - 1903) left the Royal Worcester factory and set up on his own. It is made from Faience which is a tin-glazed earthernware which gives the appearance of porcelain. The 114 / 2 is a factory mark.
If you are looking to sell you could approach a local auction house or post on an online auction platform such as ebay or etsy with a guide price of £130.
Do let me know if you have any further questions.

Hello, apologies for the delay. This jug has been troubling me - I have found only three references to the artist J. Derbyshire and no one really knows who he is! The vase is probably unmarked Royal Worcester and would have a resale value of £80.
