Eric Knowles Comments

This moneybox appears to be a later variant of those made from 1838 by the Emery family of Mexborough in Yorkshire.

The Emery’s based their examples upon the local Methodist chapel that is still standing in Bank Street albeit with an altered frontage but still retaining the double side windows as shown on this Staffordshire example and which. as with all such other wares .is unmarked making attribution to a specific maker virtually impossible.

For a detailed discussion of the ‘The Emery’s of Mexborough – A study of a backyard pottery’ by Alan and Janet Tomlinson and Graham Oliver See The Northern Ceramic Journal Volume 33. 2017. page157.
