A tea canister of this shape with a cover is illustrated by Sheenah Smith, Lowestoft Porcelain in Norwich Castle Museum, Vol.1 (1975), pl.30, no.557. Both the present lot and the Norwich Castle example would appear to be marked with a '5' for the painter Robert Allen, but the latter is decorated with floral sprays and sprigs only.
