Footnotes

  • Zorensky catalogue, fig. 292. The pattern is a simplified version of that found on the chocolate cup and saucer in the following lot, also painted in an extremely rare colour. Although Japanese in inspiration, Meissen would appear to be a more direct influence. For matching cups and saucers with the crossed swords mark of Meissen, see Rous Lench Collection, Christies, 30 May 1990, lot 297 and H. Rissik Marshall, Coloured Worcester Porcelain, cat. no. 200.
