Antique English pottery prattware massive scale pitcher dated 1805 with armorial and image of a horse.

Reference: 5851

Dated: 1805 England

A very rare Prattware pottery large scale pitcher with armorials and image of a prancing horse with script initials J F B , the date 1805 all this in a cartouche of flowers and foliage. The border and at the side of the handle are naive images of houses and flowers which counterbalance the strikingly bold and formal armorials. It is exceptionally uncommon to have such a large piece in prattware colours and it is likely that the pitcher was specially commissioned.

Medium: Prattware pearlware ceramic pottery earthenware

Current Condition Professional and excellent restoration at the spout and rim

Provenance: Private Collection West Virginia USA and then with a collector in the North West of England.
