Ironstone white chamber pot with handle recovered from the S.S. Central America shipwreck. // Maddock's / Patent / Ironstone / China //. John Maddock and Sons Ltd. have made ironstone and earthenware in Burslem, Staffordshire, England, since 1855, heavily advertising in 1856-57 in England. The only advertisement found in the U.S. was for an apparent shipload of Maddock's goods that were sent to auction in New York City on February 28, 1855, which was a good way to sell a shipload of material into a new marketplace. This piece could very well have been purchased at that auction held by J. Bartlett, probably by the purser for the S.S. George Law, which later became the S.S. Central America. (NY Herald 2/28/55) This and other pieces have the same hallmark. 7" diameter, 5" tall, completely intact, no visible chips or cracks.
