Dear all,

Not strictly a query regarding a 20th century piece but was hoping to get some pointers regarding an earthenware lidded pot as pictured.

Quite a rustic feel to construction. With incised scrolling decoration along with the text.

Rees Jones
Cleaton Moor
Cumberland
1882

I am researching the location etc but wondered if the form and nature of the piece was something that had been seen by a member.

Any tips on other forums suited to my enquiry would be greatly appreciated.
Ps I also wondered whether the jar might have been for tobacco?!?

Thanks in advance for your help

Kindest

My first-and second!- thought on seeing this was Wetheriggs pottery in Penrith, Given the location and slipware. Founded in 1855 they did a lot of slipware in Victorian times, including commemorative ware. Google the images!

Thanks Naomi. It’s a charming piece. Fantastic to be piecing together info related to it through the help of you guys! :)

Believe the motto and dec is all scratched in in almost a sgraffito manner.
