Footnotes


  • Zorensky Catalogue, fig. 151. A matching sparrow beak jug was in the Billie Pain collection, sold in these rooms 26 November 2003, lot 130. This design is based on a Chinese export pattern in 'encre de Chine' style painted in black monochrome. It is likely that a full tea service of the pattern was made at Worcester although examples are rare. A can or small mug with a coloured-in version of the same pattern was in the Zorensky Collection, part 1, lot 1.
