Footnotes

  • Provenance: The first teapot and cover from the Solon Collection. The teapot and jug are illustrated as the frontispiece of Creamware and Pearlware Re-Examined (2005). The 'sunburst' effect on the cover is similar to that on a Swinton cover illustrated by Dr Alwyn Cox, Swinton Creamware and Pearlware, p.134, fig.70. A matching set with Hebrew inscriptions in the panels includes the date 1769, see Rosalie Sharp, Ceramics Ethics and Scandal (2002), p.98
