Note: An inscription taken from the original mount reads; Subject of the month “Household Crockery”.
In general, hawkers (as opposed to pedlars) had transport ie. a horse and cart of some description. They generally worked from door to door and often had regular rounds/routes that they followed. Pot hawkers – obviously selling wares from the potteries may have sold their goods close to canals or railways giving a more lucrative trade with more people around, but this uncertain. The inscription on the original mount suggests the watercolour may have been published in a journal or paper of some kind.
