Pearlware glazed pottery, relief ceramic earthenware. Made in Staffordshire, England c. 1790-1830, named after Felix Pratt who was one of the best known makers. Prattware is generally made in light-coloured or buff clay, decorated under the glaze with a limited range of high temperature colours – metallic oxides which can withstand the heat of firing. The glaze sometimes has a bluish tinge (from the pearlware glaze). The most recognizable pieces are jugs, modeled in relief with borders of stylized leaves and foliage, with panels, medallions and a broad range of favourite subjects such as: Britannia, Nelson, classical and religious subjects.
