Footnotes

  • These rare examples were probably cast from moulds originally designed for white saltglaze. As such they represent some of the earliest creamware tableware. Corresponding biscuit shards from Thomas Whieldon's site at Fenton Vivian are illustrated in Leslie Grigsby's catalogue of the Henry Weldon Collection (1990), p.136
