6548 A Delftware Bin Label for 'OLD HOCK'


Click on the images to see more detail

This is a good delftware bin label for OLD HOCK with blue lettering against a white-glazed background.  Below the 'H' and 'O' of HOCK the depth of glaze is quite thin revealing the ochre-coloured earthenware beneath. There is very minor fritting around the edge of the label, but overall it is in exceptionally good condition, without any chips or cracks.

It is a fine collector's piece.
