Staffordshire Leeds Pearlware Tankard ~ Tea Leaf ~ Brown Hand Painted C1820 Nr:
English Staffordshire or Leeds Pearlware Brown Painted Tankard c1820
~ Three Leaf Tea Leaf Flower and Vine Border ~
4 3/4" high ~ about 4 3/4" across the lip and handle
An early English soft paste pearlware tankard decorated by hand with dark brown flowers and leaves. The central flower is similar to the design of the 'tea leaf' ironstone flower done 20 or 30 years after this was made. The top border is decorated with a wavy vine of leaves, the rim, foot and handle painted with a single brown stripe.
In excellent condition; any brown marks you see on the rim or sides is stray enamel, not damage, all the surfaces are smooth and without damage or restoration, the footrim is a bit rough and a bit of crazing as expected.
