English Salt Glazed Pottery Lion Mid-18th Century Made circa 1760



Salt glazed pottery figure of a lion made in England in the mid-18th Century. The body is covered in a beautiful smoky gray colored salt glaze. The figure was slip-cast and has sharp definition in the molded mane, and ribs. The notable eyes and tongue were made using brown clay. For any collector of English salt glaze this important piece would be a wonderful addition to their collection. English salt glazed pottery was popular in the American colonies from the early 17th century and well into the 18th century, and much of the English production was exported to America. An image of a similar figure of a molded salt glazed lion in the Catzen collection can be found in D Edwards & R Hampson "White Salt-Glazed Stoneware of the British Isles" pg 111 figure 110. Condition: Excellent with a small invisible restoration to the base. Dimensions: 6 inches tall x 5 inches deep x 2.25 inches wide Price: $2,400 History Experiments in stoneware production began in England during the second part of the 17th century. The earliest evidence has been dated 1650–1700 at the site of a kiln at Woolwich Ferry, London. During the 17th century and 18th century high quality salt-glazed stoneware was produced in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, London and Staffordshire.
