Footnotes

  • This shape of jug and cover is discussed by Geoffrey Godden, Lowestoft Porcelains (1985), p.206 and appears to be unique to Lowestoft and to Worcester where they were made for the Dutch market. A similar example, lacking the cover, is illustrated by Sheenah Smith, Lowestoft Porcelain in Norwich Castle Museum, Vol.1 (1975), no.205
