Footnotes

  • Models of this ewer were supplied to the Wedgwood factory by John Flaxman snr in 1775, but the original designs were probably copied or cast from models by Claude Michel Clodion (1738-1814), who possibly derived them from a model by Sigisbert-François Michel (1728-1811). See London, Royal Academy of Arts, John Flaxman, R.A., 26 Oct-9 Dec. 1979, David Bindman.

    For a pair of comparables ewers see Christies, London, 22 May 2003, lot 39.
