Leeds pepper caster, c.1820

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Baluster form pottery¬†pepper pot from England with cobalt decoration, measures 4-1/4″ high.

A base carved from wood and painted blue to match the caster’s decoration replaces the original broken base.

Putty was added to the crudely carved wood base to adhere it to the bottom of the pot.

This Leeds pot with similar form and decoration has its base intact.
