Footnotes

  • Provenance: Elis Jenkins Collection, Lord Swansea Collection. The same design of a basket of flowers is also found on the Lysagt service, mostly painted by Henry Morris and probably made during the Bevington period. This cup and saucer is of 'duck egg' porcelain and probably pre-dates Lysagt pieces
