Footnotes

  • For other pieces of locally decorated Swansea with similar Derby-style borders, see A E (Jimmy)Jones and Sir Leslie Joseph, Swansea Porcelain Shapes and Decoration, p. 217. It is also interesting to compare the painting on this lot with the coffee can painted by George Beddow with a view of 'Swansea Pier' and illustrated at p 223, fig 4
