A late 18th century small creamware figure of a fox pressed out in a mold and hollow on the inside in the 18th century creamware style. Made in England, circa 1790. We can see the brushstrokes of the orange glaze on the fox's coat. His eyes are glazed in midnight brown. He is shown sitting on his haunches resting on green "grass". This rare figure was part of the collection of Colonial Williamsburg, and was recently deaccessioned. He is sweet looking with an inquisitive expression. When most people think of a fox they think of an animal going after its prey, or being chased in a fox hunt. This little fox is at rest. He has an inquisitive and gentle expression. He is either looking for a treat or a good home.

Background of creamware
Creamware is the name given to a type of earthenware pottery which is made from white clays from Dorset and Devonshire combined with an amount of calcined flint.
Creamware was first produced in England some time before 1740. Foremost of the pioneers of creamware in the Staffordshire Potteries was Thomas Whieldon. He produced a wide variety of creamware. The young Josiah Wedgwood was in partnership with Thomas Whieldon from 1754-1759, and when Wedgwood left to set up his own business, he immediately directed his efforts to the development of creamware. Following Wedgwood's success many of the Staffordshire potters began to make creamware.
