Footnotes

  • Exhibited in the ECC Exhibition 1986, Stoke-on-Trent City Museum, p.71, pls.30a and b and front cover. The image of Nancy Dawson was used in the 1762 edition of The Ladies Amusement. This coffee pot is discussed by Tom Walford, Early Creamware from North East England, Creamware and Pearlware Re-Examined (2005), p.96, figs.18 and 19. Tom suggested the group to which his pot belongs was made in the Newcastle area, based upon distinctive potting features and the strong continental influences prevalent in Newcastle at the time. The occurrence of a similar figures in the work of William Beilby is also discussed. See also Tom Walford paper in the NCS Newsletter No.157, illustrated on p.5, fig.1.
