A super quality 18th century, pierced creamware curd cheese mould. This is very finely potted and there is quite a rich yellow glaze to the pot. The tiered sides are elaborately pierced with geometric patterns made up of circular, oval and triangular holes. To the top is a realistically modelled fish, swimming in waves.
There is one small chip to the rim which could be the result of the removal of a kiln stilt during the manufacture. Otherwise it is in excellent condition.
English, probably Leeds Pottery. Date c.1780.
