#2 - Transferware Darning Eggs

Siddall, Judie

A request from Tony Calvin of Cumbria, England about a possible attribution of a jug to the (John) Wilkinson Pottery of Whitehaven, West Cumberland (1820-1867), led to the serendipitous discovery of the uses of the rare egg-shaped transfer printed objects that I have been fascinated by for years. Tony and I shared information about the jug, and thus I learned about the Wilkinson Pottery and its production of transferware eggs.
