English soft-paste porcelain cream pot possilby made the Vauxhall Factory (w.1751-1763) copying a Chinese Imari original (a style originating in Japan and copied by the Chinese) with its painted Imari decoration of rocks and flowers in blue, red, beige, and gilding. According to ceramics scholar, Maurice Hillis (in March, 2003), similarly decorated sherds have been associated with the Vauxhall Factory in London, England; the English porcelain expert David Redstone thought this piece was possibly Vauxhall and dated it during his visit with members of the the English Ceramic Circle, May 14, 2010. Vauxhall porcelain, which was produced between 1751 and 1763 by the firm of Nicolas Crisp and John Sanders, never carried a factory mark. Until the factory's chance discovery, the wares had been erroneously attributed to William Ball's Liverpool factory of that period amongst others. The baluster-shaped pot has a small pouring spout, coil handle, and flared foot.
