Footnotes

  • Provenance: the Zorensky collection, part 3, lot 39. Illustrated by Sandon and Spero (1996), fig. 68. At Worcester the 'Mobbing Birds' pattern was painted by a number of different hands. The vase and cover, lot 41 in this sale is carefully copied from Chelsea, whereas the treatment of the bird painting on this jug couldn’t be more different. The birds and insects here are certainly not 'naturalistic' and instead possess a robust character all of their own
