Footnotes

  • A plate with related decoration was sold in these rooms 18 May 2011, lot 508. Dishes of Brace type are only rarely encountered, the wider border panels allowing for more detailed birds and fruit than is found on plates of the same pattern. Another is illustrated by W D John, Nantgarw Porcelain (1948), illustration 31B, stated to be from the dessert service presented to the Rt Hon William Brace PC. The attribution of the decoration to the Bradley workshop is based upon the similarities of the border sprigs found on a series of Nantgarw porcelain painted with birds taken from George Edwards' Natural History of Uncommon Birds and inscribed 'J Bradley and Co'. See Oliver Fairclough, The London China Trade, ECC Trans, Vol.16, Pt.2, pp.206-207.
