£495.00 Approx $680.88, €579.63

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.

Dimensions: Length 16.7cm. Width 13cm Height 9cm.
