This miniature piece was probably from a child's toy tea service. The piece was excavated and is missing its spout. It has a marbled or agate effect which was created by the wedging together of different coloured layers of local clays. The piece is an example of the local wares produced in Staffordshire when Josiah Wedgwood was a young man.
