Mochaware Pitcher with Three Cable Decoration England Circa 1830


This mochaware pitcher has three broad bands of slip-decorated color: two bands of dark tan frame a band of light blue.
Each band is decorated with a wavy three-color cable of white, light brown, and dark “mocha” brown.
Every piece of Mochaware is unique. Decorated with a three-color cable pattern, this pitcher is a gem!
Made in England circa 1830, it would have been turned on a lathe.
The turner decorated this pitcher with concentric bands of dark brown above and below each slip-colored band.
The turner then unlocked the lathe and applied by freehand a three-color cable of marbled slip design over the bands of colored ground.
The use of cable patterns on mochaware is an English invention created around 1810.
For images and a detailed explanation of this multi-chambered slip pot decoration, see Jonathan Rickard’s “Mocha and Related Dipped Wares 1770-1939,” pp 62-74.
