Description: "A super antique creamware coffee pot and cover beautifully hand decorated in purple monochrome with flowers in a basket and flower sprays produced at the Melbourne Pottery circa 1770. The distinctive colour and style of decoration is characteristic of that found on some of the excellent creamware pieces produced at the Melbourne pottery near Derby. Attribution of creamware is however always difficult and wonderful creamware pieces were also produced at the Leeds Pottery, in Liverpool and at Wedgwood Staffordshire. This highly original antique is an antique pottery jewel: a rare piece worthy of a museum collection and not to be missed by the serious and knowledgeable antique pottery collector." Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear
References: For examples of Melbourne Pottery with purple monochrome decoration see Creamware and other English Pottery at Temple Newsam House Leeds, Peter Walton. colour plate page 184. Catalogue example 752 illustrates a contemporary Derbyshire attributed teapot that appears decorated by the same artist as this fine piece.
Marks: none.
Dimensions:  height 280 mm max. approximately 11 inches, width 195 mm max.
Condition: In excellent display condition and overall a great example with no significant defects. Condition report: There are several tiny flake chips/glaze grazes to the edge of the spout and three tiny flake chips to the top rim edge of the coffee pot body noticeable on close inspection. To the lid there is a fine tight hairline that extends down from the finial and one small glazed over chip (from firing) and some minor fritting/flake chips to the inside flange rim. Some typical light rubbing wear to onglaze decoration which overall is excellent for display. No restoration. A beautiful choice example of finest antique English pottery creamware.
