Description: A white salt-glazed stoneware pitcher with a relief design of salt-glazed bamboo, leaves, and berries. The base has ten sides. The bottom section curves inward and then outward forming a right angle. The main section tapers at the rim, which curves out slightly. The opening is not exactly circular and the lip is irregular in shape. There is a raised line at the front and the back. The mould on the base indicates a diamond-shaped registration mark, nine and a heart. The handle is missing. History: The registration mark on the pitcher indicates that it is from England, 1842-67. See, Geoffrey A Godden's “The Handbook of British Pottery and Porcelain Marks” (1969), 109-111. Salt glaze is a glaze on stoneware formed by throwing common salt on wares during firing. The salt decomposes and combines with silica and alumina in the clay to form a glassy finish called a 'Salt glaze'. See: David L. Newlands “Early Ontario Potters: Their Craft and Trade” (Toronto: McGraw-Hill Ryerson Ltd.), 274.
