Description

The syndenham body style was introduced by T & R Boote in 1853.  It achieved instant popularity and thus was copied widely.  The three potters (Livesley and Powell, Anthony Shaw and Edward Walley) decorated their Wrapped Sydenham versions with a variety of treatments.  Collectors will find traditional Tea Leaf (Shaw) , Scallops (Walley)  and Lustre Band (Livesley & Powell) motifs.  FInials may also vary - Shaw may have a bud finial ahile Walley feature an acorn finial.  Patton also made wares in this body style.
