About

A good earthenware slip glaze scraffito decorated harvest pitcher named and dated "J. H and Ann Gammon Hollowill 1868". The pitcher profusely decorated with harvest motifs, sheaf of corn, long stemmed smoking pipes, ale goblets and a frothing jug. In a addition there are several verses relating to farming. Interestingly there is an image of two figures in a sailing boat with an inscription " This small jug in friendship take and keep it for Thomas Bears sake", indicating that he was the giver of the jug to the Gammons and that he was probably a fisherman friend. The well applied handle has a thumb piece and terminating scroll at the base. The jug is the work of Edwin Beer a master potter in the mid 19th century at the Fishleys pottery. A fine piece of regional Folk Art with a social context. An image of Edwin Beer Fishley can be viewed in this picture gallery.
