Footnotes

  • Provenance: Phillips London, 3 December 1992, lot 382. As with the previous lot, this was made as a duplicate from the miniature dinner service Minton created for Queen Mary's Doll's House. This specimen was presented to the Lady Mayoress of Liverpool when she visited the Minton works in 1929. A further selection of duplicate pieces from the set, including a similar tureen, is illustrated by Paul Atterbury and Maureen Batkin, Dictionary of Minton (1990), p.133.
