BROWNWARE THREE BLIND
We are going to include on
a regular basis a number of unusual items of pottery and are asking for
feedback from other collectors and visitors to the TPCS web site about the
origin of these items. Also whether there are other pieces of similar
pottery which have been seen or are owned by visitors to this web site.
We are showing a number of
illustrations of this unmarked jug which we can attribute to the Aller Vale
Pottery due to the shape being identical to other jugs marked with No.154
pattern. The applied mouldings which are commonly known as ‘Sprigging’ or
‘Relief Moulding’, are of the Three Blind Mice. As the photos show there
is also ‘Sprigged’ moulding under the handle of the jug.
We have also illustrated
another similar Aller Vale pot which is a copy of the Royal Doulton
‘Drinking Scene’ jug. We would like further feedback from anyone who has
a similar ‘Nursery Rhyme’ type piece and also anyone who has a marked
example of this ‘Brownware’.
