Footnotes

  • Provenance: The Strawbridge Collection. A number of Nantgarw services with related decoration are known, one of which was in the possession of the Priest Richards family of 'Plâs Newydd', near Cowbridge. In 1880 it was given to Ella Priest Richards on her marriage to the Mackintosh of Mackintosh. Three such services are discussed by WD John, Nantgarw Porcelain, Supplement Number Two. All are thought to have been ordered by Mortlocks from the decorators Robbins and Randall of Barnsbury Street, Islington, the bird painting probably by Thomas Martin Randall
