Catalogue Note

During the 1969-70 excavations at the Vauxhall Cross site on the south bank of the Thames a kiln waster was unearthed incised with the name 'John Price', which is illustrated by Dennis Cockell, 'Some Finds of Pottery at Vauxhall Cross', English Ceramic Circle Transactions, Vol. 9, Part 2, pl. 138. A further bottle inscribed and dated 'John Price/ 1724', slightly larger than the present example is in the Potteries Museum, Stoke-on-Trent, illustrated by Adrian Oswald et al. English Brown Stoneware 1670-1900, London, 1982, p. 51, no. 19, where the authors suggest an attribution to Vauxhall.
