Footnotes

  • Provenance: the cornucopia exhibited by Garry Atkins, March 1994, fig.36 and is illustrated by Diana Edwards, The influence of Saltglazed Stoneware on Creamware, Creamware and Pearlware (2005) p.160, pl.160. The building is based on a design by Lord Burlington for a garden pavilion at Chiswick House and may be derived from an illustration in the 1746 edition of Gay's Fables. An identical pair in green was in the Goldweitz collection, lot 133. The teapot is illustrated by Roger Massey, Understanding Creamware, Creamware and Pearlware Re-examined (2005) p.19, pl.4. A very similar example is illustrated by Towner (1978), pl.8A.
