Catalogue Note

Michael Archer mentions in Delftware, The Tin-glazed Earthenware of the British Isles, London, 1997, p. 266, that dated wine bottles range from 1621 to 1719 and that some of the earliest examples illustrated date to circa 1640. Only five other wine bottles dated earlier are recorded and are illustrated by Louis L. Lipski and Michael Archer, Dated English Delftware, Tin-glazed Earthenware 1600-1800,  London, 1984, cat. nos. 1249-1253, pp. 308-310, one bottle initialled and dated B / W :M, 1621 and four others dated 1628 and decorated in the Chinese style with variations of the 'birds on a rock' pattern.

The arms are probably those of Sir Paul Pindar (1565-1650). As the only known armorial dated wine bottle, the present example is one of the earliest dated and rarest bottles recorded.
