Footnotes

  • The earliest known piece of dated delftware with this type of wreath decoration is a flower vase dated 1650, illustrated by Louis L. Lipski and Michael Archer, Dated Delftware (1984), no.1564. Approximately thirty dated plates with wreath decoration are recorded with dates varying 1670 to 1727. These plates were probably produced to celebrate a marriage, the upper initial denotes the couple's surname and the lower initials their Christian names
