Urn-shaped bowl with an open fret lid for scented material such as pot-pourri. Even gold/yellow glaze. This is darker in the recesses. Inside the jar it has a splatter effect. The urn has two opposing twist handles. The neck has two bands of chevron patterns, sandwiching a line of dots. Below this, on the shoulder is a band of acanthus leaves sitting on another band of chevrons. A sequence repeated, though upside down, below the main band of ornamentation, which consists of a winding twig sprouting the occasional leaf and blossom. The pattern on the neck is repeated on the base. The lid takes the form of a crown with five vertical bands meeting at the apex. Here five acanthus leaves surround the knob, which is in the shape of a two-faced human head. Between the five bands is an open lattice pattern. The two mould seams may be seen where the handles are attached.Three stilt marks may be seen on the inside of the lid.
Stamped DUNMORE on the base - type 1 (even line).
