Footnotes

  • This trio is part of one of only four tea and coffee services identified as having been painted by Thomas Pardoe in his decorating workshop at Bristol. These comprise a service made for the Honourable Mrs King, illustrated by Morton Nance, pl CLXXXVIIIA, another made for Lord Milford in 1818, a third for William Lewes of Duffryn House, Carmarthenshire in 1812, and the service of which the present lot forms a part. A coffee can and saucer from the Milford service was sold in these rooms on 10 December 2003, and a milk jug from the Lewes service on 10 December 2008, lot 281. The Lewes Service features panels of shells similar to those on this trio, a style of painting little changed since Pardoe's days at the Cambrian Pottery. See Jonathan Gray, The Cambrian Company, Swansea Pottery in London 1806-1808 (2012), pls 6.70 and 6.71, pp.198-200 for a Cambrian pottery cabaret tray and matching teapot and cover painted with shells by Pardoe in similar style. The teapot and cover and a saucer dish from the same service as the present lot is illustrated at pls 6.72, p.201
