Description

Earthenware, tin-glazed overall except the underside of the footring. The glaze is thickly applied and has raised dribbles near the rim, and pin holes here and there. Painted in manganese with touches of yellow and sage-green which has run into the glaze.
Circular with deep, slightly warped sides, standing on a footring.
One side is decorated with Pluto abducting Proserpine in a chariot drawn by two horses, attended by three putti, one of whom holds the reins of the horses and brandishes a whip. Above there are flying birds, and on each side, a tree. On the opposite side the goddess sits with her hands tied behind her back, attended by two putti, one holding a fruit, perhaps a pomegranate. Between these scenes there are landscapes: on the left of the chariot, a cluster of buildings beside a bridge, trees, clumps of foliage, a man on a horse and a man walking with a gun, and flying birds: on the right of the chariot, a group of buildings beside a ruined colonnade, trees and flying birds. The foot is decorated with a horizontal line at the top, a wavy line, and a wide line between two narrow lines. The name 'O FARIELL' is written in manganese across the middle of the inside.
