Footnotes

  • A very similar mug from the Sir Jeremy Lever Collection, Part 2, painted with a flower spray of identical composition, was sold in these rooms on 23 January 2008, lot 119. The similarity of the sprays suggests that both were painted by the same factory hand and helps confirm the authenticity of the decoration
