Pegwell Bay Pot Lid

Pot LIds were an early form of marketing and packaging - they are pictures printed on pottery covers and placed on pots of products. They were produced in colour by the 1830s. This pot lid is one of the Pegwell Bay series. It is called Hauling in the Trawl. It's a common lid copied from a drawing in London Illustrated News on 6 March 1847. It was produced for Crosse and Blackwell by the Pratt factory. It is worth approximately $100.00
