Circa 1755-65
(Ref: NY9375-ncar)

The lead-glazed earthenware creamware teapot and cover is of a globular form like an apple with an inset lid surmounted with a bird, its wings outstretched, as a finial. The spout and handle are press-molded in a crabstock design. The body and cover are decorated with sponged underglaze oxides and the sides of the teapot each have very crisp sprig-molded relief decoration of scrolling vines with large leaves and bunches of grapes. Each side is slightly different.

Dimensions: 4 1/2 inches high x 7 inches long x 4 inches

Reference: See The Henry H. Weldon Collection, English Pottery, 1650-1800, Leslie Grisby, Page 176, # 82 for a similar example.

Also English Pottery: The Burnap Collection in the William Rockhill Nelson Gallery of Art, Page 59, #383, for an illustration of a punch pot with very similar relief decoration.

David Barker & Pat Halfpenny in Unearthing Staffordshire, page 38, suggests that this type of decoration has been found on pottery wasters excavated in Town Road, Hanley, and have been tentatively attributed to Humphrey Palmer.
