Certainly one of the oldest potteries on record although the name had changed with each successor up until 1802 when it was official named The Bristol Pottery. Around mid-20th century Bristol Potteries partnered with R. Twining – a tea distributor and retailer – to create a line of ginger, or tea, jars. They were uniform in design with various Victorian scenes imprinted (transferware) as well as florals and birds. This lovely little jar is made of white porcelain with a round removable lid and shows two hunt scenes on the body with the elusive fox on the lid. Stamped at bottom “Bristol Pottery Est 1652, made in England, R .Twining Co Ltd, London. This jar is in very good condition with one note: there is a thin, broken black line around the lid and I am not sure if it is the original trim that has been worn or newer marks. It does not take away from the beauty of this piece but important to point out. C 1950s, made in England. Base measures 3 inches across, top opening measures 2 ½ inches across, 5 ½ inches tall with a 15 inch circumference around.
