Footnotes

  • John Randall was born in Shropshire in 1810 and was apprenticed to his uncle, Thomas Martin Randall, at Madeley. After working at Rockingham, he returned to Shropshire and worked at Coalport for the rest of his painting career. He specialised in birds, both in formal 'Sèvres-style' and in the naturalistic style seen on the present lot, which must have been one of his last works as failing eyesight forced him to retire in around 1880. See Michael Messenger, Coalport (1995), colour plate 31 for a Coalport vase and cover painted by Randall in similar style with another peregrine
