A useful little mid-century stoneware jar. Wide and shallow, it features a beaded, treacle glazed collar and a natural glazed body.
As is usual with stoneware, there’s the odd bubble and drip in the glaze, giving it rustic charm.
The base reveals a Pearsons of Chesterfield 1810 backstamp, which is slightly misleading as careful research reveals this mark to have originated from the 1950s-1970s.
Pearson & Co produced stoneware in Derbyshire from 1810 when an existing pottery was acquired by Catherine Pearson.
As well as jars, jugs and other vessels, Pearsons made wares for industrial purposes. The pottery closed its doors in the 1990s.
Originally used for preserving, it would now make a beautiful stationery jar or characterful container for wild, blowsy blooms.
Free from chips, cracks and crazing. Ready to be reloved and to add a dash of country soul to your home.
Mouth of jar 10cm diameter
Body of jar 12cm diameter
