Footnotes

  • The tea canister is illustrated by Tom Walford, The Sloping Neck Tea Canister Factory, NCS Newsletter No 163, p.33, figs.1-3 where its North Eastern origin is discussed. The sucrier and cover is illustrated at figs.9 and 10, with special reference to the horizontal flower knop, another North Eastern feature. The handle terminals on the mug are the same the 'Mary Clark' coffee pot illustrated by Tom Walford, Early Creamware from North East England, Creamware and Pearlware Re-Examined (2005), p 106.
