Footnotes

  • One of the globular teapots is illustrated by Tom Walford, The Sloping Neck Tea Canister Factory, NCS Newsletter No 163, p 37, fig 11 where it is attributed to Swinton and illustrates the differences between North Eastern flower knops and those made in Staffordshire, Yorkshire or Derbyshire. Horizontal flower knops are a North Eastern feature. Another of the globular pots is illustrated by Tom Walford, The Search for Whieldon's Creamware, ECC Trans., Vol.17, Pt.3, p.438.
