Footnotes

  • Illustrated by Tom Walford, Early Creamware from North East England, Creamware and Pearlware Re-Examined (2005), p 105, figs 36-38. The distinctive moulded grooves on the handle are similar to two mugs discussed by Walford, op cit, pp.102-106. One is lot 60 in this sale and the other is in the Willett Collection in Brighton. Both are attributed to the North East, the Willett mug bearing a depiction of a building broadly similar to Hylton Castle, owned by the Maling family. John Maling was the proprietor of the North Hylton Pottery.
