Thomas Lakin was a very skillful and well documented English potter working in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, but his works are surprisingly uncommon. He died in 1821 and three years later his widow published a book “The Valuable Receipts of the late Mr. Thomas Lakin” section one of which gives “Receipts for superior and common bodies of Porcelain, earthenware…” This attractive piece has the impressed “Drab porcelain” stamp, though it is earthenware that would not be called porcelain today. The British Museum only has two pieces by Lakin.
