This unusual Prattware bread plate was made for the Great Exhibition of 1851, enabling the firm of F & R Pratt & Co., to show their excellent polychrome printing technique to best advantage.
The scene depicts Christ reprimanding the Pharisees for chastising his disciples for picking and eating ears of corn on the Sabbath. The quote, ” I will have mercy and will not sacrifice…” from the Book of Matthew, in the New Testament, Chapter 9. verse 13. It rims the central image in gilt lettering against a muted, olive background.
The outer edge of the plate has a polychrome transfer band of sheaves of corn. The edge of the plate is finished in gilt.
Jesse Austin (1806-1879) the artist and engraver, worked for Felix Edward Pratt (1813-1894). Together they devised the process of high-quality, underglaze printing on pottery for which Pratt is famous.
One of these plates is held in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London, UK.
This is a beautiful, Moorcroft biscuit barrel, fitted with a silver plated handle and inset lid by William Hutton and Sons.
The pottery barrel is beautifully decorated with a frieze of trees in summer foliage, in muted shades of greens and browns against a red, twilight sky. along Along the bottom of the barrel, behind the trees, in the background, are rolling hills in deep shades of cobalt blue, tinged with the orange red of the sky. The decoration features the raised outline for which Moorcroft is famous.
The high-polish, domed lid is inset in a silver collar around the neck of the jar, to which a hinged half-circle handle is fixed. The handle raises and lowers perfectly. The inset lid is topped with a raised round finial.
William Moorcroft founded his pottery near Staffordshire in 1913, after leaving MacIntyre’s Arts and Crafts design studio, where he was responsible for ceramics. Moorcroft ceramics were sold by Liberty’s in London.

This is a Kingsware baluster whiskey jug, decorated in the Arts and Crafts manner, in a muted naturalistic palette, by master pottery decorator, Charles Noke, with an image of the Pied Piper of Hamelin playing his flute.
Charles Nokes went to Doulton after serving for 16 years at Worcester factory, where he had trained under James Hadley. Kingsware was the result of a Noke’s experiment with glaze. Much of it was made for the Dewar’s Company for Scotch whiskey.
Doulton Kingsware whiskey jugs are both decorative and highly collectible. This is fine example of Noke’s work, and would take pride of place in a collection of Kingsware. It’s also a great gift for someone who collects unique bar ware, and would appreciate an unusual water pitcher to use when Scotch is served.
Marked: Signed “Noke” on the front, on the lower, left hand corner, near the foot of the figure. Black transfer mark on the bottom of the base, in use at the Doulton Burslem factory, Stoke-on-Trent, between 1902-22 (pictured).
