Dating to c. 1780, this piece of pottery is a classic example of Thomas Whieldon's work. Whieldon was one of the finest potters in his day (18th C.) and the pieces from his Fenton Low pottery are highly collectible. This pattern is Cabbage Leaf. The leaves of the cabbage surround the base of the creamer and gently reach upwards, covering the handle. The top portion of the creamer (where the spout is) is a light beige and has the marvelous texture known to those who love Whieldon. The piece is in good condition, believing to have been professionally repaired. This would make a delightful addition to any Whieldon collection.
