Period : George III
Marks : None
Origin : Lowestoft; England

Features: Moulded floral pattern to the body which sits on a high - and thick-rimmed - foot; the inverted rims are raised to a very distinctive point roughly half-way from back to front.
Condition : Excellent; no chips or flakes - just some tiny pin-prick holes to the glaze (one of which has stained) and a crack around the lower handle terminal; there are some small scorch-marks to the rim, some staining to the inside of the pouring spout and to the foot rim, and a few inadvertent ink-marks from the decorating process
Restoration ; none
