Footnotes

  • Provenance: The Zorensky Collection, Part 2, lot 357, illustrated by John Sandon and Simon Spero, the Zorensky catalogue (1996), fig 672. This was previously sold in these rooms on 6 June 1991, lot 540 and illustrated by John Sandon, Dictionary of Worcester Porcelain (1992), p. 159. While the Fisherman print in the centre enjoyed great popularity, the Chinoiserie designs used in the border only occur on these very rare Junket dishes. The images are probably based on Pillement designs, such as those used in The Ladies Amusement.
