A small press-moulded hollow earthenware figure of a hare or possibly a rabbit. With a fairly light coloured brown treacleware glaze which has a yellowish hue and dark speckling in the glaze. Yellowish buff coloured clay body. The base is open, the lower edge (foot rim) is mostly unglazed. The inside is glazed with missed patches.

This charming figure is very rare. Other rare examples are known, but with a pale tan glaze with painted black spot type decoration, which have traditionally usually been attributed to Yorkshire. However the Yorkshire attribution does not appear to be evidence based.

This example was possibly made in Yorkshire but a Staffordshire origin is equally likely. This is an early type of treacleware made circa 1825-1840.

Pot ID:

AP/1028

Date:

c.1825-1840

Dimensions:

121 mm highest to top of ear.

Weight (grams):

Broken into approximately 6 pieces and crudely re-glued. A large chip on inside base rim and a medium chip on outer base rim. Both ear tips are chipped. No restoration.

A very rare item that displays well despite the damage.
