Footnotes

  • The coffee pot is similar in shape to Lot (line 298-Nancy Dawson coffee pot) in this sale, sharing a similar ribbed spout and handle and a pierced mushroom knop. These features are discussed by Tom Walford, Early Creamware from North East England, Creamware and Pearlware Re-Visited (2005), p.98. A typical feature of this group is use of a small landscape on the cover echoing that on the pot itself. The guglet was exhibited in the NCS Exhibition ,Stoke-on-Trent 1986, catalogue p.72.
