New Favourite

I love the early Carter and Co, tin glazed, Blue Stripe pots and this one, that came from eBay 2 weeks ago, is my best yet.  It's just 5 inches tall, potted from white stoneware, and has a particularly thin application of the white slip these pots were dipped in, leaving exposed much of the rough stoneware surface.  There are some thicker globs of slip around the rim, but the over all surface has a parchment quality that adds to the watercolour on paper look of the blue painted lines.  Its signed with the MC mark used by Sissey Collett.
