White felspathic stoneware oval, baluster-shaped cream jug with molded and applied relief decoration and blue trim. The molded pattern on this creampot has been associated with the Leeds Pottery, operating in Leeds, Yorkshire, England. An attributed, unmarked feldspathic stoneware teapot and black basalt sucrier (sugar bowl), and cream jug with similar decoration can be seen in John Griffin, "The Leeds Pottery." This pattern of rosettes in squares with an anthemion border appears in the Leeds Pottery Drawing Book for Blackware 1806, post 1812 section, at No. 86. The shaped rim and everted lip are outlined in blue; over a graduated band of alternating inverted acanthus leaves and bell flowers extending into the curved neck; over a blue band and row of vertical reeding; over a blue band and two rows of molded squares; over a blue band and narrow band of gadrooning; over a blue band and row of vertical foliate sprays over the blue-outlined base. The blue-outlined C-shaped handle extends from the rim, and has two large furls at each end of the flat top and a small scrolled terminal.
