English Castleford-type white felspathic stoneware oval cream jug (part of a set with sugar bowl HD 1668.2) with molded and applied relief decoration. 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), Wedgwood, and the 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. Straight rim with gallery formed of circles with flower in each. D-shaped handle with furl, which is attached at rim and middle of body. Sloped shoulder is decorated with a band of inverted leaves. Body divided into 4 panels with vertical columns with plant-like capitals: One panel has a young boy and lion; on reverse are 2 young boys, one lighting the other's torch. Scene below shaped spout is of a woman standing holding cornucopia. Slightly flared foot supports straight-sided body.
