Antique English Sussex Pottery 19th Century Glazed Jar
Of the various types of traditional English country pottery made during the 18th and 19th centuries, Sussex pottery is some of the most attractive and desirable. Sussex pottery was made at a handful of small local potteries and examples are typically made of a deep reddish-brown earthenware coated in a distinctive speckled glaze, the speckling cause by an excess of iron in the clay. Most wares were functional, being made for local rural communities.
This is a nice sturdy jar, possibly originally used as a tobacco jar. The glaze on the outer surface stops short of the base; the inside is completely glazed.
Height 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). There is some surface wear, most noticeably around the shoulder “ridge”, but in good condition with no restoration or repair.
