Antique Scottish Stoneware Wine Ewer Pewter Lid Relief Moulded J & M.P Bell 1850
A very attractive and collectable white stoneware wine ewer made by J & M.P Bell of Glasgow, Scotland and dating from around 1850. A similar piece (without the pewter lid) can be seen on the Scottish Pottery Society website: gallery archive.
The ewer is approx 11 1/2 inches high and has a charming low relief moulded design of cherubs and a grapevine with bunches of grapes. There is a twisted naturalistic handle with twin terminals and a hinged pewter lid. The ewer is unmarked apart from a couple of numbers on the base. It is a very handsome item and in very good condition with just a couple of tight hairlines around the top of the handle, near the terminals. It is a heavy and substantial item at 1642g. This is a great item for display and perfect for any collector of antique stoneware or Bell / Scottish ceramics.
