Urn

Earthenware, decorated by Aphra Peirce and made at the Della Robbia Pottery, Birkenhead, 1894-1900

The decoration on this urn is known as sgraffito. This is the art of scratching patterns and designs in clay through a coating of slip.

The outlined design has then been painted in various colours before being glazed.
