Antique English Circa 1800 Feldspathic Stoneware Coffee Can Putto Lion And Dog Sprigged Scene
This decorative and very fine feldspathic stoneware coffee can was produced at the turn of the 19th century, circa 1790 to 1810. The dark buff colored stoneware body is VERY finely potted, extremely light in weight and when tapped gently has a good high pitched ring to it; the interior of the coffee can has been smear glazed. The raised design is a classical scene featuring a putto playing with a lion, a putto playing with a dog and to the centre a putto holding a ring of garlands. There is no makers mark on this piece; the raised design is similar in style to item s produced by Herculaneum Pottery, Neale and Co and Chetham and Wooley (although their pieces are denser/ heavier than our refined example).
Measuring: Coffee can diameter with handle 2 5/8” (7 cm). Coffee can diameter without handle 2.25” (5.7 cm). Height 2 1/8” (5.7 cm).
Condition is very good with no damage or restoration. A rare stoneware treasure for your collection.
