Moses Tyler and Charles Dillon made carefully crafted products of very high quality. Even the incised and cobalt-glazed decorations demonstrate meticulous detail work and careful application of cobalt glaze. A wooden spigot was inserted into the hole near the base; that controlled the flow of liquid into a waiting glass. Additional comments
