Description:
White felspathic stoneware coffeepot with a domed lid with a molded Widow of Zarephath finial over a band of acanthus leaves; curvalinear pot body with a tapering neck, bulbous base, flared circular foot; a molded double C-scroll and spur handle held to the upper body with a short horizontal bar; and a molded ribbed spout with molded acanthus leaves. The center body has a band of oak leaves over two sprig-molded decorations on either side: a shepherd with a sheep and dog; and a classical-draped woman with a winged cupid. In 1997, Diana Edwards attributed this coffeepot to the Turner Factory during a 1997 visit to Historic Deerfield. However, Colin Wyman in his "Chetham & Woolley Stonewares, 1793-1821" illustrates a similar coffepot with an oak-leaf border, and the same finial and oak leaf border, and notes that the design of this "handle appears to be a special feature of the factory's coffeepots and may be regarded as a powerful indicator for attribution." The same finial and oak leaf border also appear on a marked Chetham & Woolley black basalt teapot. James Chetham (1754-1807) and his brother-in-law Richard Woolley were in partnership from at least 1793 to 1807 with Chetham's death, when his widow, Ann, succeeded him and contined business with Woolley until his departure in 1809. Ann contined the business, joined by her son, Jonathan Lowe Chetham, in 1814, trading as Chetham & Son from 1818 until her death in 1821. Jonathan Chetham continued with John Robinson as Chetham & Robinson from 1822 to 1834; with Robinson's son, Samuel, as Chetham & Robinson & Son from 1834 until John's death in 1840; and alone until his death in 1861.
