Brampton Saltglaze Stoneware Cottage Tobacco Box/jar And Cover Circa 1840-50.:
A lovely little Tobacco box/jar and lid made from saltglaze stoneware and made at Brampton Chesterfield in the middle of the Nineteenth Century.
The piece is beautifully detailed - the basemodelled as a cottage with doors and windows on each of the six sides and further decorated with stonework and trailing ivy.The lid represents the roof with what seems to be a cobbled effect which is presumably thatch.A chimney acts as the handle for lifting the lid.
Coloured in a typical Brampton honey brownglaze - this is a particularly nice example.
Condition is extremely good - just one v small chip to the top edge of the chimney(see photos).No maker's mark as is often the case with such pieces.
Height - just over 4 1/2ins.Length 4ins.
