Corn's Square Ridged can be distinguished by its odd shape and scalloped rim. The somewhat facetious nickname "Square Pear" is based on the very wide lower section of the body. The body flares from a relatively narrow collar to a low waist with a narrow band of ribbing below. The bud-less gold or copper lustre motif is reminiscent of Davenport's Tea Leaf. Shaving mugs follow conventional lines but have a band of ribbing near the base. The gold lustre cloverleaf is an unusual adaptation on an ironstone body style.
