Description

The combined characteristics of a clockwise sprigged hunt scene and punch party scene place this tankard in the group identified as 'Factory C', as categorized by Adrian Oswald et al., English Brown Stoneware 1670-1900, London, 1982, appendix II, where the authors suggest a likely attribution of London but note that some similar sprigged motifs appear on mugs of Bristol manufacture.
