A reddish-brown saltglaze coffee or chocolate pot, mid to late Eighteenth century, probably made in Nottingham, UK, nicely decorated with a raised pattern of sheep.
There is a small chip on the edge of the lid but, as it is glazed over, it is almost certainly how it left the factory. There is some hairline cracking to the base, probably as a result of containing very hot liquids. There is another faint hairline to one side of the spout, which is very difficult to photograph. The pale mark under the spout is not a chip but a raised 'blob' of the body which has taken less glaze. The pot is 7.5 inches high.
Please take a look at all the photos, which clearly illustrate both it beauty and its condition.
