ANGLO-AMERICAN POTTERY.
TYPE I. The colonial form is the purest example of this
type, as illustrated in the old Liverpool cream ware, includ-
ing what are generally known as Washington pitchers. This
form is tall and graceful, with curving and recurving out-
line, swelling at the center and widening out again at top and
bottom. The nozzle is sharp and angular, the upper line be-
ing a continuation of the straight margin of the upper edge,
while the plain, bent handle rises to the same level. Some
of the Staffordshire forms were modifications of this, being
somewhat lower and broader. All of these may be included
in the same group.
