    The beautifully illustrated post above gives our enquirers useful leads to a wealth of information about John Dwight’s Fulham Pottery. In normal times I would also suggest a visit to the Museum of London, London Wall, EC2 and its Expanding City Gallery (1670s – 1850s).
    Sadly, the Museum is currenlty closed. Permit me therefore to describe what I saw there when I visited a few years ago: Surrounded by other ceramic pieces, in one of the cabinets, was a spherical, salt-glazed stoneware grenade of about 1673. It is 80 mm across, would have been filled with gunpowder, and sealed with a wooden plug perforated for a fuse. ‘Our’ potter, John Dwight (c.1635-1703) was an incredible innovator. Having set up his pottery in Fulham in 1672, it seems he planned to supply the army and navy with such ceramic grenades during the Third Anglo-Dutch War (1672-74).
