18th Century Creamware Pitcher James & Charles Whitehead Yorkshire England C-1780


This elegant water pitcher has neoclassical decoration consisting of two bands of impressed fluting and a lovely intertwined rope handle with leaf and flower terminals. The pitcher is baluster shaped on a domed foot, the body and foot partially fluted, the wavy rim with simple ribbed molding outside and molded with scrollwork and foliage inside opposite the high spreading lip; the ribbed double intertwined loop handle with flower and leaf terminals. The pitcher was made in Staffordshire, England, circa 1780, by James and Charles Whitehead, Hanley.

For an image and description, see Creamware and Other English Pottery at Temple Newsam House, Leeds, p.127, by Peter Walton, where Walton states, “Corresponds exactly to no.115 in WPB (The Whitehead Catalog 1798) Fluted without cover(s). Note especially the piece of moulded scrollwork inside the rim and the terminal type, both of which agree precisely with the WPB design.”

The underside has a sticker for Maria and Peter Warren Antiques.
