Footnotes

  • A biscuit earthenware teapot waster applied with a similar relief of Chinoiserie ladies was found on the Greatbatch Site (Phase II). The decoration is taken from plate 175 of The Ladies Amusement, reproduced by Leslie Grigsby, Weldon Catalogue (1990), p.58. A tortoiseshell-ware coffee pot decorated with the same moulded figures is illustrated by David Barker, William Greatbatch (1990), p.196, pl.72.
