Footnotes

  • Provenance: Ann and June Kieft Collection. Illustrated by W D John, Nantgarw Album, Illustration 90 and by E Morton Nance, The Pottery and Porcelain of Swansea and Nantgarw, pl CLXXIXC. Nance states at p 419 that the handle on the cover of this lot corresponds with one excavated at the Nantgarw site. Only a very small number of Nantgarw ice pails are recorded, this lot being particularly important in view of fine condition and the high quality local decoration by Thomas Pardoe. Two London decorated examples of the same form are illustrated by Roland Williams, Nantgarw Porcelain 1813-1822, figs 73 and 74, p 30. A slightly squatter variant with a more rounded base is shown at fig 72.
