Footnotes

  • Illustrated: D. S. Howard, Chinese Armorial Porcelain Faber&Faber Ltd, London, 1974, p.662.

    Provenance: Formerly in the collection of, and probably made for, William Manning (1763-1835), Member of Parliament for Evesham, Lymington and Penryn. Manning served as Governor of The Bank of England during the critical years that witnessed Napoleon's return from Russia and exile to Elba, 1812-1814. Export services manufactured for, or owned by, former Governors of The Bank of England are scarce on the market. However, see also Howard p.235 for the Sheafe impaling Higgins service, made for Alexander Sheafe, Governor of The Bank of England, 1752-54.
