Footnotes

  • This is a very rare shape to find with reticulated decoration by George Owen and this is hardly surprising, as it will have been particularly difficult to plan the fine network of honeycomb on a vase with an oval cross section. Samuel Ranford provided the gilding on many of George Owen's finest productions. The mark of the caster, no. 61 seen here, also occurs on many of Owen's pieces and may be the numeral used by Owen's son, George Potter Owen.
