Misleading Pieces
New Hall

New Hall jugs and mugs have been mistaken for early Ridgway sprigged wares. They do have a certain similarity, but the handle form is quite different, and distinctive.

The mug is 85mm high and 95mm in diameter. The handle protrudes 29mm.

See David Holgate, New Hall (London, 1987), p.107, pl.94.
