PRATT WARE POT, SHAKSPEAR.
Although these Pratt wear pots with hunting designs are fairly common this example commemorating William Shakspear is much harder to find. Blue glazed pot with gold and black under glaze print, obverse side features a seated William shakspear with two cherubs holding masks and with the legend, SHAKSPEAR BORN APRIL 23 1564. The obverse side features a globe with the seven ages of man (birth to death), and below this the scales of time with theatrical masks and the legend, THE WORLD'S A STAGE. [Condition: Mint]
