Second, contraband: Vase 158/8.
As the moon ripples over the sea, a sailing ship glides towards a darkened cove. Through a canopy of trees, you glimpse the smugglers, with swords and knives at the ready in leather scabbards. Is the vessel holding friends or foes as well as casks of brandy, tea and tobacco? Paul’s design brilliance allows us to be the silent witness to the unfurling scene.
This could be the infamous Piskey’s Cove, where John Carter “The King of Prussia” landed his smuggled goods. Can you hear the desperate, hushed, voices of the smugglers as they disappear silently into the night’s shadows to hide their stolen loot? With their hoard safely secured in hidden caves that would remain dry on a neap tide, we follow their pernicious plan. The design is completed with the smugglers carrying and scraping their casks on cobbled streets, as they offload their contraband.
