Footnotes

  • Provenance: the rope handled example from Jonathan Horne, illustrated by Tom Walford, A Collector's Progress, English Pottery Studies in Honour of Jonathan Horne (2011), p.116, fig.3. Both are illustrated by Tom Walford, The Search for Whieldon's Creamware, ECC Trans., Vol.17, Pt.3, 2001, pp.436-437. The same spout as the first mentioned is found on two redware coffee pots, the handles of which match shards excavated at Fenton Vivian, as does the ropetwist handle. The unusual positioning of the applied flower and leaf sprigs appears to be a Whieldon feature. The distinctive double scroll handle, a further feature of Whieldon productions, is also seen on the puzzle jug in the previous lot.
