Lot Essay


Josiah Wedgwood's list of Staffordshire potteries active around 1700-15 includes a Joseph Glass of Hanley who made "Clowdy and a sort of dishes painted with different coloured slops." For a dated cradle of 1703 see B. Rackham, Catalogue of The Glaisher Collection of Pottery & Porcelain in the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge, vol. 1, Woodbridge, 1987, no. 345, pl. 23F. See ibid. no. 215, pl. 19C for a 'Pelican in its Piety' dish by Ralph Simpson with a similar bird. No other dish by Joseph Glass appears to be recorded.
