Favourite Item
This Sussex pig from the Belle-Vue Pottery Rye is actually a drinking vessel with removable head that can be used as a cup and its body when tilted back used as a jug - and this particular example is in amazing condition.
The interior of its head is inscribed by its maker with a cross 'X' and within this cross it bears three letters R.S.W. and in the remaining space the word Rye, the letters stand for 'Rustic Sussex Ware'
The pig's shoulder is also inscribed in Sussex dialect with the words 'Won't be druv' which come from a local rhyme:-
And you can pook
And you can shove
But a Sussex Pig
He wun't be druv.
Excellent
