The Landskip pattern was produced in saltglaze, creamware, and green glaze. It features a recumbent lamb finial, beaded spout, and moulded house and farm animals in enameled colors. The design was originally attributed to William Greatbaton, but that association has since been discounted. Block moulds for the pattern are in the Wedgwood Museum, but Whieldon and other Staffordshire potters also produced the pattern.
