17. An unrecorded William Reid Liverpool documentary dated inkwell.
of cylindrical shape with a raised central opening and four smaller holes around the shoulder for quills, Inscribed on the side 'I M 1762' in underglaze blue with a small heart between the letters, the reverse painted with a house with a smoking chimney alongside a tree in a landscape, the shoulder with a double border of diaper panels and feathered decoration.
William Reid's 'Liverpool China Manufactory' on Brownlow Hill went bankrupt in 1761, production was continued in 1762 by the assignees probably under the management of William Ball (when this inkwell was made) until the factory was taken over be James Pennington in 1763.

Only a handful of dated Liverpool inkwells are recorded. Decoration of this type on porcelain, of a house with the smoking chimney is most unusual and normally only found on delftware.
