Antique Staffordshire pottery tea caddy in the form of a cauliflower. This piece is often associated with the work of Wedgwood and Greatbach two of the major names in early Staffordshire pottery production.
They were early ceramic pioneers along with Thomas Whieldon in the mid 18th century. The technique used lead-glazed cream colored earthenware (creamware) with an underglaze colored metal oxide. The lower half of the body in green has distinctly molded long leaves, above which, on the body and lid, is the white cauliflower design. The Rococo style brought with it new excitement in ceramics and a focus on a naturalist form. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Kitchen & Home\Dinnerware & Serveware\Teapots & Tea Sets".
