New Hall black bat printed porcelain coffee can, c.1805, slightly tapered with an oval ring handle. The main scene is of a rural landscape with an ancient tower and smaller buildings in the background with a girl standing to the fore holding a bundle of firewood under her arm. The scene is framed by trees either side and a fence running along the front. The other scene is simpler, of a small cottage set in the country. Black rim and band around the foot and inside the rim and graduated dots down the handle finishing with a black V at the terminal. Unmarked.
It measures 6.3cm (2 7/16") high, 6.7cm (2 1/8") rim to rim and 8.5cm (3 3/8") rim to handle.
Condition is good. There is a short tight hairline in the glaze to the left of the handle amongst the tree, I wasn't able to get it to show in a photograph on the outside. Otherwise no damage or restoration and surface wear is light. The print is a little lighter in a few small areas.
