Brittain Pottery

After the initial firing to harden this pot, the potter dipped it into an iron oxide slip, rim first, then set it upright before moving on to the next pot. You can see where he had held the pot with the tips of his fingers (the light-coloured semi-circles at the base). This pot was made in Waverley, possibly by Henry Brittain Jr.
