This small jug was made by A & E Keeling Co., c 1795. Until recently, the wares of this fine 18th C potter were known only as "Factory X". One of the tell-tale identifiers in the cream or milk jugs is the "bar- like ridge across the top of the loop" according to David Holgate, in the book "Staffordshire Porcelain", edited by Geoffrey Godden.

The pedestal creamer is obconical (shaped like an inverted cone). It has crisply molded ogee flutes, and is about 5" high. The diameter of the base is 2".

It is in excellent condition. There are no chips, no cracks, no crazing, and no repairs. It rings when tapped. There is slight wear to one spot of the interior pink line inside the mouth. The base is unmarked.

The Keeling family of potters had a wide-reaching and important presence in Staffordshire (Tunstall & environs) in the late 18th C and early 19th C.
