Punch pot

Longton Hall British

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 510

This punch pot was intended for the serving of an alcoholic punch, and its contents are suggested by the overlapping vine leaves and small bunches of grapes that decorate its surface. The pot was made at the Longton Hall factory in Staffordshire which frequently employed low-relief motifs drawn from nature as the primary decoration of its wares.
