Footnotes

  • Zorensky catalogue fig. 262. The chinoiseries are painted in a free and imaginative manner. The compositions, especially the treatment of rockwork and perspective, are reminiscent of the best Worcester blue and white painting at this period and is testament to the enormous skill of the factory's decorators. For a similar jug see the Rous Lench sale, Sotheby's 1st July 1986, lot 248.
