A creamware mask jug, dated 1773
Probably Cockpit Hill, of ovoid form with a broad spreading foot, the strap handle with an elaborate applied terminal, inscribed below the satyr mask spout 'James Thatcher Charney Berks 1773' within a red and black cartouche, a Chinese figure beside a table to one side, flowers to the other, rouletted borders, 21.1cm high (restored)


  • Charney Bassett is a village about four and a half miles north of Wantage, formerly in Berkshire but now in Oxfordshire. The Thatcher family is recorded as resident there in the 18th century. The style of painting relates to that found on other Cockpit Hill and on Derby porcelain. The same handle terminals are found on a teapot in the following lot.
