An extremely rare slip-ware honey jar with scraffito decoration, a pot which I believe originates from the Silver Hill or High Halden Potteries. It is conceived in the naturalistic/rustic style popularized by John Pelling who was foreman at the Silver Hill works in Hastings. Though his work was mostly unglazed he did produce glazed pieces as well. Interestingly he had married the owners daughter [Polly Tree] in 1851 and a romantic legend recalls that his rustic tree-bark style was developed in homage to her!
