Footnotes

  • A tureen of almost identical form with loop handles, impressed WEDGWOOD is in the V&A museum and is illustrated by Robin Reilly, Wedgwood I (1989) p.197, pl.187. The shape is reputedly taken from a Sevres tureen belong to the Duchess of Bedford. Josiah wrote to Bentley on 7 October 1765, 'I have been three Days hard & close at work takeing pattns from a set of French China at the Duke of Bedford's worth at least £1,500, the most elegant things I ever saw, & am this evening to wait & be waited upon by designers, modelers &c'.
