Summer House, Wrinehill, Staffordshire

Summer House, Wrinehill, StaffordshireSummer House, Wrinehill, StaffordshireVery few of the 8,000 – 9,000 advertising pot lids portray an actual building, let alone the owner’s residence (in this case) or the actual manufactory (apparently across the road).  This one does.  According to the Historic England website, Summer House dates from around 1710-1720.  The lid probably dates from the later 19th century.  More information in the TCC DB, Pattern # 12307.
