An early black-glazed ‘Shining Black’ or ‘Jackfield’ type coffee-pot of unusually large size. The body and spout have remains of coloured cold enamelling depicting various flowers including forget-me-nots and roses.

The handle is crudely moulded in a strap form with two outer spurs and a thumbed/pinched kick-up lower terminal. The foot is flared and decorated with an enamelled chain. The base is turned and recessed.

The body is red terra-cotta clay with oxide staining to make it black and a thick black glaze covering inside and out except the base.

The spout has been extended with a collar added to increase the size so that it matches the extra large size of the coffeepot. There is no internal strainer.

This is by far the largest early Jackfield ware coffeepot we have ever encountered. A truly rare item.

Almost certainly made in Staffordshire, England, rather than Jackfield, Shropshire. Made circa 1765-1780.

The lid is missing. Several chips around the spout lip. Several very minor small chips around the neck rim. There is a hairline from just above the handle (but does not reach the rim) which goes across the body on reverse side and stops at the spout, it then restarts on the other side of spout and extends approx. 4” into middle of body on obverse side. A tiny hairline across tip of lower handle terminal (not across handle). The enamels are worn and partially missing.
