Footnotes

  • The cover to the large Cockpit Hill teapot is illustrated by Tom Walford, Cockpit Hill-some evidence from Shards and other places, Creamware and Pearlware Re-Visited (2005), fig.31, p.193 and two similar teapots at fig.30, p.192. The rather elongated flower sprays seen on the covers are typical of this phase of production at Cockpit Hill.
