Footnotes

  • Illustrated by Rowland Williams, Nantgarw Porcelain 1813-22, fig.5, p.10. The Camden Service was ordered by Lady Camden on 11 April 1795. The correspondence between Joseph Lygo and William Duesbury concerning the service is reproduced by John Twitchett, Derby Porcelain (2002), p.180. On 25 June, John Duesbury, overseer at Derby wrote to William Duesbury 'Lady Camden's will be in hand today except the Ice pails and a few Plates to replace damaged ones'. See Twitchett, col. pl.156 for a sceaux from the service
