Footnotes

  • Provenance: the Wynn Hamilton-Foyn Collection, sold in these rooms 18 May 2011, lot 59. This was one of the last pieces collected by Tom Walford who appreciated the early date and rarity of this sauceboat, which is the only recorded example of this shape. Tom speculated about an Isleworth origin although no corresponding shards have been identified. The shape relates to Limehouse and early Bow porcelain suggesting a date in the 1740s or early 1750s and therefore it probably pre-dates creamware production at Isleworth.
