Footnotes

  • Provenance: the third mentioned pair from Jonathan Horne, illustrated by Tom Walford, A Collector's progress, This Blessed Pot, This Earth (2011), p.114, fig.1, also shown in the ECC Creamware and Pearlware Exhibition 1986, p.71. The second pair may have been decorated in the workshop of William Absolon at Yarmouth as the 'berry' borders show the influence of nearby Lowestoft porcelain. The palette is typical of Absolon's work.
