Lord Dacre stoneware teapot - Staffordshire circa 1840

Lord Dacre stoneware teapot produced in Staffordshire England circa 1840. Randolf Dacre (c.1412-1461) was the sixth Baron's second son and was summoned to Parliament as Lord Dacre of Gilsland in 1459. A leading Lancastrian nobleman, he was killed in the Battle of Towton and is buried in the graveyard of Saxton Church, Saxton, Yorkshire. His grave is the only visible trace of the battle remaining. On his tomb is inscribed “Here lies Randolf, Lord of Dacre and Gilsland, a true knight, valiant in battle in the service of King Henry VI, who died on Palm Sunday, 29 March 1461, on whose soul may God have mercy, Amen.” Lord Dacre is seated in a circular chair with his left arm forming the handle of the teapot and his right arm the spout. Around the front base of the teapot are the words "I Dacre Clitheroe". Perhaps referring to nearby Clitheroe Castle.
