  • A creamboat of the same shape from the A J Smith Collection and marked 'BRISTOL' is illustrated by Simon Spero, Lund's Bristol and Early Worcester Porcelain (2005), p.72. The pattern on the reverse of the jug is repeated on a sauceboat illustrated by Bernard Watney, English Blue and White Porcelain (1973), pl.20a, sold by Phillips on 10 May 2000, lot 547. Unlike much of the Lund's production, the blue decoration on this lot is well controlled, especially on the landscape panels.
