Footnotes

  • The first coffee pot was found in the Newcastle area and is discussed by Tom Walford, Early Creamware from North East England, Creamware and Pearlware Re-Visited (2005), pp.107-108. It bears North Eastern features of a pierced mushroom finial and a landscape on the cover. The exuberant handle terminals are the same as the 'Mary Clark' coffee pot illustrated on p.106, and a teapot in Truro Museum shown on p.101. The decorator of the second coffee pot is responsible for a number of pieces with the same scene, both in blue and white and in enamels. Two related examples, also dated 1782, were sold in these rooms 18 April 2012, lots 42 and 43.
