This Sussex Honey-Pot which originated from the Silver-Hill or High Halden potteries is conceived in the naturalistic/rustic style popularized by John Pelling foreman at the Silver-hill works Hastings. Though a great deal of his work was unglazed he did also produce glazed pieces as well.
Interestingly he was married to the owner's daughter (Polly Tree) in 1851 and a romantic legend recalls that his rustic tree-bark style was developed in homage to her.
