John Alcock manufactured earthenware and ironstone at Elder Pottery, Cobridge, Stoke-on-Kent, from 1853-1861. Subsequently it operated as Henry Alcock & Co. Ltd from 1861-1900.

This lovely ironstone, black or dark mulberry transferware, tea pot is the "Vincennes" pattern. Both sides of the vessel are decorated with an English Country scene of a manor house, lake, bridge, people and landscaped garden. The base, top, spout, handle and lid is adorned with scrolls and geometric designs. The tea pot measures 6 1/4" across the base, 4 3/4" across the top, 9" from spout-to-handle and 8 1/2" in height to top of lid finial. Stamped mark of company logo and "John Alcock - Vincennes - Cobridge". There are several minor conditions issues to mention: a chip on the underside of the lid finial, short hairline crack in the spout and a glaze flake on one side of the body. A great piece by scarce maker and wonderful pattern.
