An early 18thC English antique blue and white delftware posset pot, probably London, circa 1700.

"Posset" was originally a popular British hot drink made of milk curdled with wine or ale, often spiced, which was often used as a remedy.

Decorated in underglaze blue. The serpentine spout flanked by scrolled handles, decorated with fruit amongst foliage. References: Archer M (1997) Delftware, D.16, p.264 and Grigsby L (2000) The Longridge Collection, D.281, p.307.

Condition -  The glaze has some minor fritting. The spout has been restored and has a penny-size size restoration too to the rim. One of the scrolling handles has been replaced. There is a very feint hairline to the rim and lower body. The pot displays well. Please refer to the images. A further detailed condition report is available upon request.

Size: Height 12.5 cm (5")
