Footnotes

  • A set of two smaller decanters (25.5cm) and eleven wine glasses was made for Henry Jones (d.1761) of Chastleton Manor in Gloucestershire; he was an ardent Jacobite and a member of the Gloucester Jacobite Club, which was probably affiliated to the better-known Cycle Club and met at Chastleton. Although the glass remained at Chastleton for some years - see Seddon (1995), pp.62-63, pl.4, and p.104, pl.61 - the set was sold Sotheby's, 9 July 1962, lots 95 and 96. The Worshipful Company of Grocers subsequently acquired one and with several of the wine glasses is now on loan to the National Trust in whose ownership Chastleton is now held. Both decanters bear a compass on the reverse. Apart from the present lot two further double magnum-size examples exist. One (29.4cm) without the compass was sold Sotheby's, 21 November 2000, lot 146. The other (28cm) was in the Seton-Veitch Collection, see Delomosne (2006), pl.11a which with a half-size decanter (18.5cm) in the Drambuie Collection - see Seddon (1995) p.14, col.pl.16 - bear compasses. According to Seddon's sub-division of engraving styles, op.cit., pp.138-175 it would appear that the Chastleton group was engraved by at least two different hands: Engravers A and C. The present lot can be attributed to the hand of the latter
