Footnotes

  • A pair of bamboo flower containers of the same unusual shape is in the Henry Weldon collection, illustrated by Leslie B. Grigsby (1990), p.248, item.137. While the shape is possibly derived from the well-known bamboo wares produced by Wedgwood, the form is ultimately based on Chinese export porcelain from the early 18th century.
