Footnotes

  • This pattern, painted in an identical manner, occurs on Worcester porcelain in the 1750s. It is very unusual to find such a close parallel between English porcelain and delftware painting. It is possible that a delftware painter moved to Worcester and introduced the pattern to the china works
