A very rare English Provincial Cream Pail made in Sheffield in 1775 by Tudor & Leader.

£ 1,350

The Pail stands on an unusual fluted pedestal foot. The main body displays a beaded rim and is pierced with different Neo-Gothic designs. The piercing is also decorated with Neo-Classical blue bell swags and unusual oval paterae decorated with flower heads. The arched handle is also decorated with blue bell designs and displays a vacant cartouche. This piece is very well marked on the foot, is in excellent condition, and displays a blue glass liner. The Sheffield Assay Office was established in 1773, therfore this represents a very rare early example. This is certainly the first time we have offered such an early Sheffield example. The design also has a certain Provincial feel to it and Sheffield were famous for producing some of the most besutiful Neo-Classical designs, when the assay office was first opened.

Height, to the rim: 3 inches, 7.5cm.
Diameter at the rim: 3.1 inches, 7.75cm.
