  • Illustrated by Roger Massey, Understanding Creamware, Creamware and Pearlware Re-Examined (2005), p.19, pl.5. Similar reliefs have been found on the Whieldon site at Fenton Vivian and it is likely this high-quality teapot is a Whieldon production. The same motifs have been found on other sites, however, including Greatbatch and Isleworth, suggesting that this popular model was widely copied.
