Tea cannister

Description
Production began at the Indeo Pottery in 1766 but the works were closed by 1841. Josiah Wedgwood visited in 1775 on a journey back from Cornwall and was not impressed: 'It is a poor trifling concern, and conducted in a wretched slovenly manner…'. The pottery nevertheless made a wide range of articles, including creamwares of high quality.
