Footnotes

  • A similar vase can be seen in a photograph illustrating the window display at the Army and Navy Department Store celebrating the Bi-centenary of Josiah Wedgwood's birth in 1930, reproduced in the exhibition catalogue for Miss Jones and her Fairyland, Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre: The Work of Daisy Makeig-Jones, Victoria and Albert Museum, 1990

Saleroom notices

  • Please note, the enamel to one of the enamelled birds (situated to the right of the tree house roof below the enamelled winged insect) appears to be more tactile than the orange enamel elsewhere. Therefore, there may have been some restoration to this small area of enamel
