Footnotes

  • The shell painting is very much in the manner of Thomas Baxter and it is likely that this plate was painted by a pupil. Enoch Doe acknowledged the work of his master on a series of Coalport plaques bearing inscriptions by Doe stating that they were after original paintings by Thomas Baxter. Doe worked at Worcester in partnership with George Rogers and later worked on his own in London. The border on this plate is possibly inspired by the Sèvres services made for Catherine the Great
