Footnotes

  • It is interesting to compare the flower painting to that of Worcester of circa 1757-58, see The Butti Collection, sold in these rooms, 10 May 2006, lot 50 for a trio, the saucer painted with a similar divergent tulip. While Chelsea's silver shaped oval dishes proved popular throughout the red anchor period, plates of this shape are surprisingly rare

Saleroom notices

  • Please note, some very fine crazing appears in the form of two star-cracks visible on very close inspection in the centre and side of the well
