Catalogue Note

Vessels of similar shape were made in salt glaze stoneware by John Dwight in London circa 1685; the form also appears in brown and red stoneware by the Elers brothers, probably copied from Yixing stoneware.

A similar mug, maker's mark a duck in a dotted circle, was in the Jaime Ortiz-Patiño Collection sold Sotheby's New York, May 21, 1992, lot 146 ($23,100).
