This wonderful little shaker bears classical figures standing within a framework of trees, all applied in relief. Obviously built on the popularity of Josiah Wedgwood’s very successful blue jasperware, this piece appears to be stoneware, perhaps unglazed but with a high surface gloss. This type of blue clay shows up in mugs and other wares in the 1820 period, which is when I date it this piece. Probably Staffordshire in origin. It is marked with an impressed W and B. Perfect condition, c.1820 or a little later. It is three and seven-eighths inches high.
