Rare treacleware chest of drawers moneybox with eight drawers. Probably Staffordshire but maybe Scottish. c.1865-1885.

Availability: In stock

Small earthenware moneybox with brown treacleware glaze (‘Rockingham’ type glaze). In the form of a chest of drawers with eight drawers. The flat back has a ‘nipple’ of clay where the back was pierced with an air hole (now covered with glaze). Press-moulded in two halves with rudimentary feet on base. Hand-cut coin slot on top.
This model is not found in STODDARD or any of the HUEBNER books and must therefore be considered as rare, probably rated D-E. Certainly British, but could originate from Staffordshire or possibly Scotland.
