Footnotes

  • Provenance: Thomas Walter Fletcher, purchased from Waring and Gillows, London. In 1918 Waring and Gillows sent to their good customer one of their publicity photographs showing George Owen at work. The photographs had been taken in the casting department at Royal Worcester ahead of a planned exhibition at Selfridges' store. In 1912 George Owen had been due to appear in the china department at Selfridges to demonstrate his unique skills. Unwilling to allow anyone to lern his secrets, Owen staged the photographs using already-fired vases. The photograph sent to Tom Fletcher includes, on the windowsill, a globular vase of identical shape to the present lot.
