Footnotes

  • Provenance: sold in these rooms 7 June 2002, Lot 113. These arms do not appear in Rissik Marshall's research on armorial Worcester porcelain, nor can they be traced precisely in the specialist literature. They would therefore appear to have been invented, in line with many others of this period
