Footnotes

  • A smaller but similarly shaped and decorated jug inscribed 'Sh Harries 1832' from The Howells Collection was sold in these rooms on 9 March 2005, lot 162. Another larger example inscribed 'I G and M Jones May 1st 1831' was sold here on 10 December 2003, lot 231A. The style of painting on all three jugs is very similar to Morris's work on Swansea porcelain and Morris was certainly still working in Swansea at this time as his second child, Henry Horatio, was baptised at St John's Church on 20 May 1832.
