Antique English Sussex Pottery 19th Century Glazed Flagon
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.
A nice sturdy smaller-sized harvest flagon coated in a finely-crackled streaky glaze. Height 15.5 cm (6 inches). Of course, many examples of Sussex pottery have old damage through use, although damage on this example is minimal. The base edge is intact (unlike many other flagons). There is some surface wear and a few scratches to the glaze. The upper surface of the handle has a couple of small surface chips that have been touched-in. There is no restoration or repair.
