Footnotes

  • Provenance: Godden Reference Collection. The majority of W(***) bough pots have three bun feet and a simple wavy rim. A small number are recorded with four feet and a pierced rim as seen in this lot. See Geoffrey Godden, Staffordshire Porcelain (1983), fig 718 for another of the same form. The painting may have been done at the Mansfield workshops of William Billingsley
