English Castleford-type white felspathic stoneware, oval cream jug with relief-molded decoration and blue trim. The Castleford Pottery was run by David Dunderdale & Co., operating from 1790 to 1821 in Castleford, about 15 miles from Leeds in Yorkshire; the pottery produced a range of wares in creamware, black basalt, and white feldspathic stoneware. Although many factories, such as the Sowter and Company pottery (1800-late 1820s) of Mexborough, Yorkshire, and the Chetham and Woolley site (c.1795-c.1820) and Davenport Pottery (1794-1887) in Staffordshire, made similar feldspathic stoneware wares, the term 'Castleford' is now used generically to described a wide range of feldspathic stoneware, silver-shaped tea wares, jugs, and similar objects that are slip-cast with relief-molded decoration. The shaped rim has a scalloped edge and everted lip outlined in blue over a band of graduated acanthus leaves; over a band of flowers heads on the sloped shoulder; over four panels, with four-sided foliate sprays in the four corners of the two side panels, separated by classical-style columns, all outlined in blue; over a scalloped blue band and row of flowers around the lower third of the body; on a six-sided flat base outlined in blue; and a scrolled handle with blue edges, that extends from the rim with an acanthus leaf, furl and to the body just above the base. There may be "4" scratched on the base.
