Footnotes

  • No similarly printed piece of Caughley appears to have been recorded. The print cannot be the work of Robert Hancock but bears some similarities with those found on Champion's Bristol. The impressed mark is most unusual, most 'gadroon boats' bearing an impressed star mark. See Geoffrey Godden, Caughley and Worcester Porcelains (1969), pl 109. On p 92, Godden refers an example in his collection similarly impressed with three short lines
