Redware with applied white reliefs under lead-glaze

Red earthenware, thrown, with applied spout and handle, decorated with mould-applied white sprigs (reliefs) and white slip under lead-glaze. The bulbous body rises into a short cylindrical neck with a sparrow beak lip, and at right angles to it, a ring handle pinched together at the top. Below the lip is a sprig of bird perching on an upright branch with a large leaf on either side. Further to the left is a smaller bird perching on a branch with leaves, and to the left of that, a fleur-de-lys. A white slip band runs round the rim .
