Stephen Green - Imperial Pottery

Extract from Stephen Green advertisement

No marked examples of hunting jugs have, as yet, been attributed to Green but the above listing from an 1850s advertisement confirms that they offered both jugs and mugs in a wide variety of sizes. The Imperial Pottery was one of the largest of London’s producers of stoneware barrels and food containers, so their jugs and mugs must be hiding in plain sight. Some of the pieces attributed to John Cliff may be from the Imperial Pottery’s earlier proprietor. Definitely “work in progress”.
