This elegant flagon is a fine example of an Export Flagon by Richard Yates.
Yates worked in London circa 1772-1824. He made many items for export including: plates, dishes, basins, mugs, tankards, teapots, and flagons.
Flagons of this exact design have been found in some churches in New Hampshire.
Of interest is the way the handle is constructed. The maker took a standard double “C” handle cut away the lower “C” inserted a tubular section of metal between the two sections of the handle to create this longer version. A standard double “C” handle would look too short for the body of this flagon.
11” tall to the top of the finial. In fine condition with a good touchmark.
