Footnotes

  • See David Barker and Pat Halfpenny, Unearthing Staffordshire, p.22-30 for a discussion on this type of ware. An un-glazed redware teapot attributed to Elers from the Sampson and Horne Collection was sold in these rooms 28 April 2010, lot 111. This teapot bears the same moulded panels as the present example which suggests Bell may have inherited moulds from the earlier Staffordshire Potter. Other unglazed examples are attributed to Elers, see Gordon Elliott, John and David Elers and their Contemporaries (1998), fig.3c. A glazed example similar to the present lot was exhibited by Gary Atkins in March 1995 where it is noted corresponding shards were excavated from Shelton Farm, dating from the period when a John Astbury was a tenant there.
