Footnotes

  • See Leslie B Grigsby, The Longridge Collection, p. 67, D33, for a similar charger illustrated alongside the Brislington or Bristol version. Fragments of a dish showing a large part of this figure were found by Garner at Lambeth. The same setting to that used here is found on portraits of the Dukes of Marlborough and Ormonde, Prince Eugene and George II
