Description

Pinkish-buff earthenware, tin-glazed on the exterior and very thinly on the interior; base unglazed. Painted in dark blue, green, yellow, and manganese-purple high-temperature colours, and red cold-paint.
Ovoid with flat base, short neck expanding towards the rim which is pinched at the front to form a spout, and strap handle.
On the front, within an oval yellow line and blue `ladder' frame, a rabbit regardant lies on a yellow mound beside a green pond, flanked by tufts of blue grass. Above, there is a spray of stylised yellow and blue buds and foliage enclosed by an approximately rectangular blue line. Extending from the frame on each side there are two manganese tendrils and three fan-like tufts. The inside of the mouth is red.
