Coffee pot and cover, Staffordshire factory

Image attached to C.463 & A-1928

An image of Coffee pot and cover. Unknown Staffordshire factory. The body thrown, with applied moulded handle and spout, and mould applied sprigging. The pot is pear-shaped with a long curved spout moulded with wicker pattern and foliage, and a loop handle. One side is decorated with a mould-applied figure of Britannia with lion and Union Jack shield, on which is the number '45'; on the other side there is a grotesque Chinese figure seated under a parasol. Above both figures there is a flying bird, and below a festoon of mould applied stylized flowers and scrollwork. The domed cover is decorated with a similar bird and flowers, and has an acorn-shaped knob. Red dry-bodied stoneware, circa 1763-1765. Rococo.
