Footnotes

  • Provenance: The Barbara Cavenagh Collection. William Billingsley arrived at Worcester in the summer of 1808. It is likely that most of his painting on Worcester porcelain was carried out in the first year or two of his time there as Martin Barr was later to put him to work on refining the Worcester body. Billingsley left Worcester in 1813. A slop bowl and a teacup and saucer from the same service as this lot is illustrated by John Sandon, The Dictionary of Worcester Porcelain, pps 66 and 67
