Most posset pots are dated to the 17th century – however, there are number of examples from the earlier 18th century that match this piece. Ref. V&A Delftware p264 for several examples, also Britton ‘London Delftware’ p144 for another close example. This one has slightly different handle form, but shares the unusual handle decoration of dashes spaced by an oval, and the shape of the whole is very similar. It is dated very late, attributed to London circa 1740.
