   A British Gilt decorated Cobalt Blue Jug commemorating the mining Village of Balnoon Consols.


Inscribed beneath the spout Balnoon Consols above a view of a brick building and mining equipment, and on each side with a pair of peacocks perched upon a fountain, the leaftip spout heightened with veining, the whole banded in gold. Height 13 inches. Provenance: The Michael Schnall Collection of American Folk Art Alistair Sampson Antiques, Ltd., London. Literature: Balnoon (mine on the down) was a small mining village located between Trink and Worvas hills in the St. Ives District, West Cornwall, England. After a lengthy history of legal issues and accidents, the mine's equipment was sold in May of 1840. The mine became active again in 1847 when a large lode of tin was discovered. By February of 1853 the mine, operating under the name Balnoon Consols, was running at a profit. In January 1856 operations were again halted for a few weeks, and finally suspended on March 30, 1858. For a complete history and statistics, see C. Noall, The St. Ives Mining District, vol. I, 1982., pp. 1-3.
